I am very allergic to antibiotics.
Is xifaxan different than other antibiotics?
I am severely allergic to most every antibiotic I've ever taken. I can take one or two. The biggest problem is Sulfa allergy and severe penicillin allergy and so many drugs are in those families. That being said, I've been able to tolerate Xifaxan with no problem. I was really surprised actually. I've been on it a few months for IBS and it has helped me tremendously.
I wish you the best of luck.
