Hi all,


I've finally got a doctor to prescribe me the Dr. Pimentel recommended dosage of 550mg of Rifaximin three times a day for 14 days... except I'm not able to source 550mg tablets in my current location. My doctor has said he's willing to adjust the dose to 600mg per day so that I can use a combination of 400mg + 200mg tablets...


Does anyone know if this is going to cause problems? It's only an additional 50mg at each dose. 


Thanks for any help/advice you can provide smile.png
