Xifaxan helps relieve diarrhea and abdominal pain.
Abdominal pain. Urgent Diarrhea. You never know when IBS-D (Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Diarrhea) will show up.
Now, there is prescription Xifaxan. XIfaxan (pronounced Zi-fax-an) is a new IBS-D treatment that helps relieve your diarrhea and abdominal pain symptoms. Do not use Xifaxan if you have a history of sensitivity to any component of Xifaxan.
Tell your doctor right away if your diarrhea worsens while taking Xifaxan as this may be a sign of a serious or even fatal condition. Tell your doctor if you have liver disease or if you taking other medication because this may increase the amount of Xifaxan in your body. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant or nursing.
The most common side effects are nausea and an increase in liver enzymes. If you think you have IBS with diarrhea, talk to your doctor about Xifaxan.
