Zaxine (Rifaximin) is a prescription medication used to treat irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBS-D) and reduce the risk of hepatic encephalopathy recurrence in adults. The active ingredient in Zaxine is Rifaximin. Rifaximin belongs to the class of medication called antibacterial agents (specifically rifamycin antibacterial). It works by reducing the number of bacteria and bacterial products in the gut, which can help improve symptoms of bloating, stomach pain, and diarrhea. It is beneficial in treating hepatic encephalopathy by inhibiting the growth of enteric ammonia-producing bacteria by reducing serum ammonia levels.

Side Effects and Precautions

The common side effects of Zaxine are flatulence, headache, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, defecation urgency and rectal tenesmus, joint pain.

• Difficulty breathing or swallowing;
• Hives;
• Hoarseness;
• Itching;
• Persistent diarrhea;

• Signs of a severe allergic reaction (e.g., abdominal cramps, difficulty breathing, nausea and vomiting, or swelling of the face and throat);
