Just wondering...if there is any.
I didn't know that.A little bit shy member.Anyway,the problem seems to be the unavailability of Raximinin(sp?) even Neomycin seems rare.I still wait from the pharmacist to confirm the status of these drugs up here.I'm not necessarly interested in the other meds.Remember that a Canadian doc cannot prescibe US drug.quote:Although Pete was Pimentel's patient for a while.
I don't know where to buy it.quote: The present invention also relates to a kit for the diagnosis and treatment of irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, ADHD, an autoimmune disease, or Crohn's disease. The kit is a ready assemblage of materials for facilitating the detection and at least partial eradication of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. The kit includes at least one, and most preferably multiple, air-tight breath sampling container(s), such as a bag, cylinder, or bottle, and at least one pre-measured amount of a substrate, such as lactulose (e.g., 10-20 g units) or glucose (e.g., 75-80 g units), for measuring breath hydrogen and/or methane before and/or after a treatment to at least partially eradicate SIBO. Alternatively, the kit contains pre-measured amount(s) of isotope-labeled substrate as described above. The present kit also contains instructions for a user in how to use the kit to effectively corroborate a suspected diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, ADHD, an autoimmune disease, or Crohn's disease, in accordance with the present diagnostic method, and how to treat the underlying cause of any of these conditions by at least partially eradicating SIBO. Optionally, the kit also contains components useful for at least partially eradicating SIBO, for example, unitized amounts of an antimicrobial agent, such as neomycin, metronidazole, teicoplanin, doxycycline, tetracycline, ciprofloxacin, augmentin, cephalexin (e.g., Keflex), penicillin, ampicillin, kanamycin, rifamycin, rifaximin, or vancomycin, or a 4- or 5-aminosalicylate compound, and/or a probiotic agent, such as an inoculum of a species or strain of Bifidobacterium or Lactobacillus, or a prokinetic agent, such as a peptide or functional analog thereof, macrolide compound, a bile acid, a bile salt, a cholinergic compound, a dopamine antagonist, a nitric oxide altering agent, a 5-HT receptor antagonist, a neuroleptic agent, a kappa agonist, or an antihistamine except ranitidine, famotidine, or nizatidine. Any combination of these can be included in the kit. The kit optionally contains an anti-inflammatory cytokine or an agonist thereof, or an antagonist or antibody effective against a pro-inflammatory cytokine. The kit optionally contains an agent that modifies afferent neural feedback or sensory perception, as described above, for alleviating or improving hyperalgesia related to SIBO or associated with a disorder caused by SIBO, such as IBS, fibromyalgia, or Crohn's disease. The components assembled in the kits of the present invention are provided to the practitioner stored in any convenient and suitable way that preserves their operability and utility. For example the components can be in dissolved, dehydrated, or lyophilized form; they can be provided at room, refrigerated or frozen temperatures.
