Has Anyone Taken Rifaximin For Their IBS? If So, What Was Your Result?

Hi yes l have taken two courses of this from my gastro doc at hospital. Have had good results both times but it only last for me around 8wks. I’m thinking of starting another course but not sure what long term effects it could have on my gut as it’s a antibiotic.

I have taken it in the past for bacteria overgrowth and it has worked. I am on it now because they can’t find a cause for my gas and bloating and the bacteria test was negative but they thought give it a try in case it was false but it does not seem to be helping this time so I think the test was right. Now back to the drawing board.
