Hello. I'm starting Xifaxan and neomycin on Monday for my methane SIBO and I'm really, really nervous. Any tips or advice? TIA!

had no problem. felt a tad (and I mean tad) punky, but nothing else.
that feeling was just having pills to digest in my stomach.
let me know how you get on.
Started xifaxan Sunday 3X day. It’s been 4 days. No problems. Good luck.

Thank you for your response. It's really helpful to hear from others who have gone through the same medication treatment. I'm planning to only take the two neomycin doses with food so hopefully I can avoid the nausea 🤞. I'll come back and post about my experience in hopes of helping others.
Thanks for your response. Are you taking neomycin with it? That's the one I'm most nervous about. I've done a round of Xifaxan alone before and didn't have any problems.
Hi, I’m on my 2nd day of xifaxan and no issues. Also was told to take Florastor probiotic for 6 weeks.
Hope you’ll be fine too.
Thank you for your response. Are you taking neomycin with it? That's the one I'm most nervous about. I've done a round of Xifaxan before and didn't have any problems. Sounds like you're doing well on it too and I hope it gets your SIBO!
I’m not taking neomycin.
Okay. Thanks. Best wishes for your health.
No I’m not taking any other drug with it.
It worked for me. Had ileocecal valve removed due to adhesions
