Good article. Treatment for SIBO is not always 100% successful. Xifaxan worked well when I first started with it years ago, then less so. Also took Flagyl. Either one would clear symptoms up, at least for a while. Nowadays, I start taking Pepto as soon as I know it’s back. 3-4 times a day. It works fairly well.
It suddenly appeared today- making me feel sick. After 2 doses of Pepto it has calmed down enough so I don’t feel sick.
