Patient Comments: SIBO - Experience

Please describe your experience with SIBO.

Comment from: Broken Tongue, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: December 23

I have extreme SIBO (hydrogen breath tests value starts high and goes over 100). Cause was TBI (total body irradiation) some years ago. I was prescribed Xifaxan. It worked wonderfully. It is not a cure, you need to repeat courses of treatment now and then but has provided great relief.
