@jackiem95 I’m taking Xifaxan to prevent hepatic encephalopathy, a side effect of advanced liver disease. It helps prevent the buildup of ammonia in my brain.

@drpepper I’ve been taking Xifaxan for just over a year and a half. It’s something my insurance will not cover without an accompanying Lactulose prescription. My hepatologist says it works better than lactulose, but hey it’s so expensive I’m happy to take the lactulose too.
Got my three month MELD update today: up from 11 to 16. Makes me feel better as I was concerned it wouldn’t change much. Dealing with exhaustion now – resting in all my spare time so I can keep going to my part-time job. Thinking about going on disability through my employer.
