Does Xifaxan cause constipation?I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome and my doctor gave this to me. Is this going to help with my IBS
Xiaflex (collagenase clostridium histolyticum) is made from a mixture of proteins derived from a certain bacteria.
Xiaflex is used to treat Dupuytren's contracture in adults. This condition causes an abnormal thickening of the tissue in the palm of the hand. This condition may get worse over time and form a "cord" in your palm, causing a permanent bend in your finger.
Constipation is not a known side effect of Xiaflex. However, different may have different experiences. If you do have constipation from it then please discuss the options with your doctor.
