Rifaximin is usually used in the treatment of travelers' diarrhea by noninvasive strains of Escherichia coli .
Currently rifaximin is being trialed to evaluate the potential benefits and safety in the treatment of moderate to severe symptoms of Crohn's Disease.
See http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00603616

It would be worth checking with the patient to make sure that he/she is aware of the current trial.
