Hi,I have suffered with IBS (with constipation) for 6 years now. It came on pretty suddenly initially and has progressed. I am in pain almost 24 hours a day and by evening I look 6 months pregnant. Severe abdominal pain, gas, bloating etc. I have tried EVERYTHING. Diet, supplements, colonics. Been to 3 different GIs and had colonoscopies and other tests and nothing has been revealed. Last week my doctor put me on Xifaxan. 200mg 2x a day. So far the pain has subsided a bit. The bloating is still there, but the severe pain and some of the gas has been a bit better. Not perfect, but noticeably improved some. I wonder if any of you have tried Xifaxan before and what your experiences are.Take care!

Check out the Prescription Medications Subforums. Read Mark Pimentel's book. Lots of people are helped by rifaximin.
