Hi @contentandwell,

I so appreciate the information you provided about the laxative products you have used. Your detailed descriptions were very helpful.

@hopeful33250 I just realized I made a mistake in what I said. Xifaxan is not a laxative. I meant that lactulose works differently from other laxatives. If I recall xifaxan basically kills the bacteria in your gut so it does not get through to your bloodstream and then to your brain.

Sorry for the error.

@hopeful33250 Hi , Xifaxan is more like an antibiotic they use to kill H-Pylori in the small intestines. You know if you have it if you get the Lactulose Breath test sometimes called SIBO test .

I’ve had a few , and been on that RX a few times ( it’s 2 week max being in it ).
I requested to go on it all times even being neg at time for SIBO . I’ve had horrendous digestive disorders fir 7.5 years, 5 Gastro Drs … so many tests, RX , diets. , holistic . No relief. Going for 3 tests at Mayo Clinic Jacksonville Oct 3-6 w/ new Gastro . Long wait to get televisit!! Finally going . Praying 🙏 they can help cure me or something soon . Rosemary….
