Rifagut Drug InformationUpdated
Active Ingredient is Rifaximin, prescribed for the Stomach/GastroIntestinal Tract (acidity, IBS [Irritable Bowel Syndrome], etc).
Rifaximin is actually an antibiotic that is used to treat gastro-instestinal infections.
Side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, vomiting and skin rash.
Are there any questions or comments?
can rifagut cure frequent bowels? i have been having frequent bowels four to five times in the morning every day. they are not loose.
Girija, since it is an antibiotic, as I stated in my other post, it is doubtful that it will help with that, because it is only going to help with conditions that are caused by some type of infection.
What you really need to do is discover what's causing your problem. Have you changed your eating habits, recently?

how u got relief from ur problem. i have similar symtoms. pl share.
What I feel you have a poor digestive system. To make problem and solution simple....I would like to recommend you the below, Whig should help.
1. Do not eat outside food, fried foods or uncooked food.
2. Try removing fibre from your diet, as it feels like your good bacterias in gut are overcome by bad ones....and fibre helps the one in control to grow faster.
3. Include fermented foods slowly in your diet. Eg. Curd, fermented milk etc which are active source of good bacteria.
4. Start taking regular suppliments for probiotic after your food.
5. Eat small diets after every two to three hours. Do not overeat and full your stomach.
6. Most important one, include breathing exercises and practice yoga regulary, half an hour in morning and half and hour in evening.
Practice this without fail for atleast 2-3
Months...than start adding solids in your diet...ur digestion will be better and you ll be cured permanently.
Hope it helps.
