There are some old posts on Rifaximin/Xifaxan, but I don't see anything new.  Does anyone use this for pouchitis? I'm wondering if anyone knows of it being used for a bout of pouchitis (not chronic), and at what dose and for how long. I'm seeing 550mg twice a day, but no length given.  Can you just use Rifaxamin/Xifaxan, or does it need to be mixed with Cipro?  My issue is that I hate Flagyl, and would like to replace it for future bouts.  I also think that I end up with SIBO type symptoms, and would think Xifaxan would help.  Thanks for the advice.

I rotate Cipro, Amoxicillin Clauvinate and Xifaxin, using each for two weeks. Before this, I was on Cipro only for 14 years. The rotation has been awesome for me. It sounds like your pouchitis isn't chronic. Mine is. I personally think Xifaxin is awesome.
