The short answer is NO.
Xifaxan – also known by its generic name Rifaximin – is an antibiotic. Its primary purpose is to kill bacteria in the digestive tract. The problem is IBS is rarely caused by a general bacteria problem. Whatever is causing your IBS will still be there.
Xifaxan Doesn’t Treat the Real Cause of IBS
Xifaxan is frequently prescribed to treat SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and some doctors believe IBS is caused by SIBO. We are experts in treating both IBS and SIBO, and IBS is not generally caused by SIBO.
Unfortunately, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) is a complex disorder with a variety of symptoms and causes. There is no one-size-fits-all cause or cure for IBS. Finding your cure requires an experienced medical expert who will spend the time to understand your unique situation and work with you on finding the right treatment plan.

Common Causes of IBS
IBS is caused by abnormalities in the way your gastrointestinal system functions. We don’t always understand why these abnormalities occur, but for the vast majority of patients we are able to identify their IBS causes and how to treat them. We’ve cured over 80% of our IBS patients, a success rate unmatched by any other clinic anywhere.
IBS symptoms can be triggered by food allergies, infections, microbial imbalances, medications, other illnesses, and more. To be cured, your doctor must correctly diagnose the cause(s) of your IBS.
Some patients have been cured when we identified a gluten sensitivity, celiac disease, or other immune system reactions to foods. For other patients, food sensitivities aren’t involved at all. Some patients have several issues that are interacting together. To be effective, treatment must be specific to the patient’s issue.
There is no single cure-all for IBS. Please don’t count on a drug like Xifaxan for a quick and permanent fix. You’d be setting yourself up for disappointment.
