    Hi, After taking several large and long courses of Rifaximin and herbal antibiotics (like oregano oil etc.) in 2015, my SIBO (which was slowly killing me) was gone. I haven't had any symptoms of SIBO since the last course. That's the good news. My gut health is overall very strong now, and I...
  4. Leaky Gas (LG) / Incontinence / Odor
    Nurses and doctors say it can smell like: barnyard/zoo smell, rotting meat, dead rotting fish, soiled diapers, backed up sewage / outhouse. All smells used to describe TMAU. But TMAU is an extremely rare condition, so I wonder if maybe C.Diff could be mistaken for it? I'm not sure if this odor...
  5. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I know I have probably bored most of you to death with my obsession with antibiotics, but I swear they are the only medication that has any real effect on my ibs. Many of you have probably ran across the site badbugs.org where the author goes into detail about their issues with D. fragilis...
  6. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Here's the story Ok, so I started obvious IBS symptoms in November of 2016. Though my normal bowel movements before it all were on the looser, and more frequent side, probably partly because I've been a runner most of my life. But I was getting ones that stuck to the bowl in April that year. I...
  7. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hello everyone, I have chronic constipation along with SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). My doctor prescribed me antibiotics to help with the bacterial infection, but I'm worried it will irritate my gut flora even more. Is it worth it? I would appreciate any advice. Thanks so much...

    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...

    Hi all, Im so fed up! I have been suffering with sibo symptoms for a long time, but they got really bad last year after taking morphine for a couple months for an unrelated painful injury.

  12. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I have dealt with increasingly problematic IBS-C since a long round of oral antibiotics for Lyme ten years ago. Concurrent with this I've faced increasing fatigue type troubles - I eat, and 90 minutes later I am very likely going to lay down and there is no getting out of this. I knew my blood...

  14. General Discussion
    Hi, I posted a few days ago but got no response. I don't have a doctors appointment until Tuesday and I'm desperate. About a month ago I finished a 1 month course of rifaximin/xixifan that really helped my ibs symptoms. I felt best the last week on the antibiotics. I didn't feel as good when...
  15. Leaky Gas (LG) / Incontinence / Odor
    I hope I'm not posting too much.. but just wanted to share. I recently had my wisdom teeth removed, and during recovery I was prescribed Amoxicillin for a week. During the course of this time I couldn't discern an odor. I came into class late once and had to sit at the very front, surrounded by...
  16. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi guys, I was diagnosed with PI-IBS in 2009. Things were under control, but last week I got bad attacks of diarrhea suddenly with urgency, rectal pain and watery stools. This happened last year too once. I am very sure I didn't eat anything contaminated. It was all home cooked food. I changed...

    Hello! I have been suffering from SIBO since January, and finally was able to get it diagnosed and treated about a month ago. The symptoms improved after the antibiotics, but I still had some bloating and motility issues. Then the bloating came back, full on, as it had been before. I...
  18. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hi guys, Sorry if you've already seen my other post to this effect; I'm just desperate for some help and don't know where else to try. I was diagnosed with methane-predominant SIBO (very high, baseline was 50+). I think I've had it for more than 10 years and am willing to try almost anything...
  19. Prescription Medications
    Has anyone tried just Neomycin for SIBO? I received a positive breath test that was very high in methane (baseline was around 60, spiking to over 100 with lactulose). I've been prescribed Neomycin, 4g daily for 10 days. To me this seems like an extremely high dose (I'm very small), and having...
