What condition does the person have? In normal circumstances, it would be highly unlikely that someone will have to be on Xifaxan for the rest of their life.
Xifaxan (rifaximin) is an antibiotic that fights bacterial infection only in the intestines.

Xifaxan is used to treat travelers' diarrhea caused by E. coli in adults and children who are at least 12 years old. Most people get this infection by eating food or drinking fluids that have been contaminated with the bacteria.

Xifaxan is also used to lower the risk of worsened brain function, or hepatic encephalopathy, in adults with liver failure. Brain function can be affected when the liver stops working and cannot remove toxic substances from the body.
