    Hi everyone, I've been dealing with SIBO for a number of years and I will be trying the elemental diet (ED) in an attempt to starve the bacterial overgrowth. I will be using the home-made Vivonex version of the ED (see page 2 Vivonex Plus version)...
  2. Diarrhea Prescription Medications
    I have had SIBO for years and managed it with Cipro and Flagyl. I was having more symptoms -- bloating, pain, lack of appetite, loose stools, when an animal bite put me on amoxcillan. I was leery of it because a couple of penicillins pills started the new symptoms, but I read that amoxcillan...

  8. Prescription Medications
    Have any of you tried Vivonex Plus before? What were your side effects and how long did it take for your body to adjust back to normal? I have tried taking this for short durations, but each time I have very poor sleep that night.
  9. Over-the-Counter (OTC) Treatments
    I need to take one of the Nestle tube feeding formulas to for slow small intestinal transit. I took the hydrogen breath test at Cedars-Sinai and the result was high methane. (I have SIBO).The doctor there recommended Vivonex Plus, but I'm wondering if Vivonex TEN would be better. Have any of you...
