I saw the specialist this afternoon, as an itcher not cured by cholestyramine I was prescribed Naltrexone which gave me some very unpleasant side effects. I now have a two month supply of Rifampicin which I understand is an anti biotic.
I think anti biotics can destroy the good gut bacteria so is anyone able to share their experiences with this drug. I am wondering whether eating yoghurt with bifidus will help to keep the balance right. Or maybe taking acidophilus?
I am so fortunate that this specialist is a very pleasant young man who is proactive and not dismissive but at the time I did not think to ask him about good gut bacteria.
