    Anyone taking Xifaxin for IBS!! HELP!

    When I saw my GI doctor the other day he wants to put me on xifaxan. He claims that there are new studies showing where this drug can almost cure IBS!! Does anyone take this or have you tried this drug?!? It only stays in the GUT and doesn't go all throughout the body. Which kinda seems good. Its used for parasites and infection. Things like that. I'm always worried to start new things when I really don't know anything about it. So,,,any helpers out there want to comment on this. Sure would help me. My IBS-C is getting me so down...Thanks so much,
    Nicki
