    Question rifamaxin

    Primal Fuel
    Has anyone used rifamaxin?

    Although about 90% of my gas and bloating is gone, 10% still remains, and when it hits, which seems to be with increasing frequency, it's really very uncomfortable. "It comes from fermentation of carbohydrates that we improperly or incompletely digest in the small intestine. These leftover bits make it to the colon/large intestine, and thatís where the magic happens."

    I listened to this:
    5 Simple Steps to Cure IBS without Drugs - YouTube
    and he recommends it to kill the gas produced in the small intestine by bad flora which has leaked through from the stomach. Here's Wiki's page Rifaximin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Here is Mark's column:

    Here is a previous forum discussion:

    She had been on PB 8 weeks.

    I've been on PB 2.5 months. Shouldn't that be long enough to end this gas production?
    Last night I had catfish and green beans, which are not on FODMAP. But that meal produce considerable gas bloating.

    So, have you tried low-FODMAP eating for 30 days? You mentioned FODMAPs, but it's not clear why.

    Have you tried digestive enzymes?

    Are you consuming probiotics (by food or supplement)?

    Yes, I use digestive enzymes, probiotics, and eat primal. I mentioned green beans and FODMAP only because I've eaten green beans before and never had any problems. I don't think catfish would cause those problems. But I was in sever discomfort last night.

    Tonight I'm OK.

    I'm trying to learn.
