What is Xifaxan prescribed for?

Xifaxan is prescribed to people with diarrhea caused by the bacteria E. coli. It is also used in patients with irritable bowel syndrome who have diarrhea, also called IBS-D.  

In addition, Xifaxan is prescribed to patients with hepatic encephalopathy. This condition develops due to an accumulation of toxins in the brain, often caused by cirrhosis. Xifaxan reduces the amount of toxins in the gut, preventing them from reaching a patient’s brain and causing further damage.

Active Ingredient

The active ingredient of Xifaxan is ifaximin.

Conditions treated by Xifaxan

Diarrhea Caused by E.coli

E. coli (or Escherichia coli) is a bacteria that lives in the intestines of people and animals. Most strains of the bacteria are harmless, however, some can cause diarrhea, stomach pain, and vomiting. People can be exposed to E. coli when drinking contaminated water or eating in restaurants with poor hygiene. Unpasteurized milk, undercooked beef, and raw produce can also be contaminated with E.coli.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome is a common disorder which manifests in symptoms like stomach pain, cramping, gas, and bloating. In addition, patients often experience either diarrhea or constipation. It is not known exactly what causes this irritable bowel syndrome. However, certain foods – as well as elevated stress levels – are believed to act as triggers.

There is no cure for irritable bowel syndrome, though the condition can be managed through interventions like diet and other lifestyle changes.

Hepatic Encephalopathy

Hepatic Encephalopathy is a decline of brain function caused by liver disease. As the liver becomes increasingly unable to filter blood effectively, toxins start to build up in the brain and can cause damage. The condition manifests in symptoms like poor concentration and judgement, forgetfulness, and erratic behavior. Hepatic encephalopathy is a treatable condition.


*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication).

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as Prescription Care assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (Refund).

To receive a Refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 866-262-2603, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
