I have been taking Xifaxan 550 for about 4weeks now. An now I haves yeast infection. Is it possible that the drug has caused the infection.
I realize this answer is a bit late but may help someone in future.
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.
Yes, it is possible that taking Xifaxan has caused the yeast infection (candida).
