jtree,I as understnad the Pimentel recommendation is that neomycin is for constipation predominate and rifaximin is for diareah predominate. Methane producing bacteria lead to constipation and that is what the neomycin treats. Hydrogen producing bacteria produce diareah, hence the use of rifaximin. I am personally going to ask my doc for both.
