The most common side effects persist or become bothersome when using Xifaxan: Dizziness; gas; headache; nausea; tiredness.

Low Platelet count is not a reported side effect of using Xifaxan.

Seek medical attention right away if any severe side effects occur when using Xifaxan: Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty swallowing or breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; flushing; unusual hoarseness); bloody stools; fever; severe diarrhea; severe or persistent tiredness or weakness; shortness of breath; stomach pain or cramping; swelling of the hands, ankles, feet, or stomach.

However, please take care, and seek medical attention from the doc who prescribed the med, maybe he/she would change your med.

Best wishes!
