the first round of Xifaxan I took for IBS in September worked wonders! Symptoms came back and my doc gave me a 3 month supply to take twice a day. However, I still have the symptoms!! Should I continue taking it in hopes I get better or stop for a while? The symptoms have me miserable! I wake up with a flat stomach and the moment any kind of food hits my gut, I look 7 months pregnant. It really keeps me from enjoying life and I dread company dinners!! So embarrassing! Bloating, the gas causes hemorrhoids. PLEASE HELP!
