a few yrs ago i took rifaximin to treat bacterial overgrowth, i supplemented during & after with intensive probiotics and had very good results for a while after. my stools and bowel function normalized. so i tried a 2nd course a little over a month ago and unfortunately i didnt have the same results. ever since i have been experiencing severe bloating and gas and i cant get rid of it. im spending a week with my girlfriend around the holidays and i really dont wanna be gassy & bloated the whole time. anyone know what i can do? ive been taking some herbal antimicrobials but they only work for a while and as soon as i stop the bloating returns. on my last night of the 2nd course of antibiotics i drank WAY too much and was sick the next day so not sure if that messed me up. would appreciate any help on this- i have a week until my trip :)

The drinking could have messed you up, what were you drinking? When I had c-diff, alcohol and diary made everything ten times worse.

Gluten Free since October 2012
Negative blood work, positive dietary response
Endocrinologist offered referral to GI if I needed formal diagnosis to follow the diet, otherwise just pass on wheat, barley & rye
and save my money

Liquor is suppose to be fine for celiacs, just make sure what it is mixed with is safe. Now with c diff I couldn't have any alcohol or diary for couple of months. Went thru three rounds of antibiotics back to back.
