I started a course of Xifaxan 6 days ago for IBS-C and having some pretty irritating side effects. I'm experiencing dehydration, intestinal inflammation, vertigo, and increased constipation.

Has anyone else experienced this while taking? Is it worth it to keep taking, or should I stop?

Any experience or advice is welcome.

The main side effects I experienced on Xifaxin were diarrhea and vivid dreams.

I recommend calling your doctor as the increased constipation and dehydration are especially concerning.

I take Xifaxan for SIBO after a bowel resection. It's fda approved for IBS-d and hepatic encephalopathy. If taken for IBS -c and sibo, neomycin is often used in conjunction. Sorry you are having side effects. For me it's given me a life back, a miracle that I hope lasts. Drink lots of fluids. I've not had side effects but as we know, we are all different. Good luck.
