Works well
Worked Great.
works GREAT!
worked but did not fix.....symptoms back in 8 days now on day 6 of Dificid....definitely not working
Working / Worked
Very pricey drug and even with insurance runs 600 a month. So far we have gotten samples for Xifaxan from two doctors otherwise my husband would only be on lactulose for HE. Just cant afford the cost along with all of the other medical costs we have.
It really helped a lot.
Working / Worked
Worked beautifully alone for 2 months or so... but now not as well alone so were having to supplement the lactulose each day.
just started it on friday night and started feeling better on saturday (in conjunction with the other meds)
