Xifaxanta (Rifaximin) 200mg Tablets reviews
Xifaxanta (Rifaximin) 200mg Tablets FAQs
No – the effect of rifaximin is limited to the gastrointestinal system. It will not treat other kinds of infection, because it is not fully absorbed into the body like some other antibiotics.
Children should not use Xifanta.
This medicine is also unsuitable for patients with a fever alongside diarrhoea. It should not be used if you have passed more than seven unformed bowel movements in the previous 24 hours, or if there is blood in your stool. Seek medical attention immediately if you experience these symptoms.
Anugesic HC Cream should be applied twice each day, and after each bowel movement.
Before use, wash your hands and the affected area thoroughly with water. Gently dry the skin around the anus to prevent further irritation.
For internal use, a nozzle is provided, which screws on to the top of the tube. Gently insert the tip of the nozzle into the anus, and squeeze the tube such that a small amount of cream is released. Withdraw the nozzle carefully, then use warm water to thoroughly wash both the nozzle and your hands.
Anugesic HC suppositories should be inserted into the rectum.
While you are taking Xifanta, remember to replenish your fluids and stay hydrated with purified water. When you feel as though you can eat, stick to neutral foods such as rice or bread rather than fatty or spicy foods.
Seek medical assistance if your symptoms have not cleared after three days of taking Xifanta, or if your symptoms recur soon afterwards.
See a doctor if you develop a fever or if you notice your symptoms getting worse over the course of the treatment.
It is not recommended to drink alcohol while experiencing symptoms of traveller’s diarrhoea as it can worsen your condition.
As long as you experience no side effects which may increase your difficulty driving, you can do so. If you do notice any adverse effects then do not drive and contact your doctor.
It is not recommended to use Xifaxanta tablets whilst you are pregnant or breastfeeding. You should see your doctor as soon as possible if you have travellers' diarrhoea whilst pregnant or breastfeeding - it is very important to avoid dehydration.
Keep Xifaxanta tablets out of the reach of children and below 30°C.
