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.

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