Tue, Jan 28 4:30pm · Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO) in Digestive Health

I have SIBO and Gastroparesis. I am currently on a 2 week treatment of Xifaxin. Fortunately it costs me nothing with my insurance. I use promethazine and nauzene for nausea. Nauzene is available I expensively over the counter. It has been a life saver for me. I also drink Kombucha daily which helps me feel better and also helps with good bacteria in the gut.

It was $27-$28 for 30 tablets. The maintenance dosage is 1 tablet/day. Intensive treatment is up to 3 tablets/day. I started with one, and that seems to work for me. Hope it brings you some relief.

What probiotic are you taking? I was taking Align, as recommended by my Mayo gastro doctor, but begin having some signs of bacteria overgrowth again. I switched probiotics to Hyperbiotics Pro-15 with 15 billion CFU-15 strains (bought it at Target). I felt better one day later, and have had no more symptoms since I’ve been taking it.

Sure. Dr. Andres J. Acosta Cardenas.

Yes, I was at the Mayo in Rochester, MN. I was treated by Dr. Andres J. Acosta Cardenas. I hope you can get the correct diagnosis and treatment plan.

No, I have not heard of Iberogast. I favor natural treatments whenever possible. I would’ve explored my options if my life hadn’t been at risk. I’m going to check it out for future reference though.

Phenegran, or Promethazine, is used for nausea. It’s the best option in my opinion, the only one that worked for me.

After leaving the Mayo in November, I went through a round of Diflucan, Flagyl, and Cipro. That’s it! The GI doctor at the Mayo said that was all I needed to do, and then take a daily probiotic. He strongly recommended Align, so that’s what I take. I guess the bacteria is gone? I sure feel like it is, at least for now. I no longer have excessive gas, bloating, stomach pain, indigestion, diarrhea, vomiting, etc. Of course, SIBO wasn’t my sole diagnosis, so some of my symptoms could’ve been related to other issues. Anyway for now I feel great. If at any point I have recurring symptoms, I was told to contact my Mayo GI doctor, and he’d reassess my situation.
