Started 2 week regimen of rifaximin for SIBO. After 1st week belching much worse. Anyone else experience this? I'm hoping it a case of it gets worse before it gets better.

Hi, @drpepper and welcome to Connect. I was on xifaxan for over a year prior to my liver transplant and never had a belching problem. We are all different though in how medications affect us, and you are taking it for a totally different reason so your situation could be causing the belching.
I hope this is just temporary and will improve.

I am on Xifaxan indefinetly after a colectomy which causes chronic SIBO. Have not experienced the belching.
