Blueflame,

I have about 4-6 BMs a day, sometimes more depending on what and how much I eat. 

I have used Xifaxan 550 mg x2 in the past. My insurance now only covers a limited annual quantity. In the past it was always the highest tier copay - $40 usually on a 30 days supply. Xifaxan was always effective for me at that dosage.

One comment on Scott’s post- I have “tried like heck” (or more) and some residual inflammation does persist. And has for 25 years. But it hasn’t killed me or deterred my quality of life.

So, are you saying Xifaxan worked for you/didn't stop working....but insurance wouldn't cover the amount you needed....and instead covers Remicade?

The more I think about this, I'm really upset. A year has gone by and I have not been on the dose the GI wanted because of insurance.
