I was just watching the local news and saw that with 1200 Ibs-D patients, 40 percent felt no ibs symptoms while taking a Antibiotic called Rifaximin. The ladie in the story was 40 years old with Ibs d for 20 some years. And after participating in the clinical trials was cured of Ibs after treatment and going strong for 3 years. The Antibiotic targets bacteria in the small intestine. The doctors say its not bad bacteria but it just doesn't belong in the small intestine. Also noted that the FDA has not approved Rifaximin to treat IBS but Doctors can perscribe it. I hope this helps atleast 40 percent of the people on this site
I just called my Doc to see if she can possibly put me on the antibotic to try it out. Hope it helps !! GOOD LUCK EVERYONE !!Kenny

If you look at the prescription medicine part of this site you will read about Rifaximin and SIBO.It has been very successful for some on here but not always permanently.Unfortunately,it isn't available here in the UK.
