    About Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s

    Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s belongs to the group of medicines called ‘antibiotics’ or ‘antibacterials’ used to treat infectious traveller’s diarrhoea (in adults and children above 12 years of age) caused by E coli bacteria, hepatic encephalopathy (decreased brain function due to liver disease) and irritable bowel syndrome with diahhorea (IBS-D). Traveller’s diarrhoea is an infection in which there is a passage of unformed stools. Hepatic encephalopathy causes loss of brain function when a damaged liver is unable to remove toxins from the blood. Irritable bowel syndrome is a condition which affects the large intestine. Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s does not work against infections caused by the virus, including cold and flu.

    Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) occurs due to imbalance in the beneficial bacteria in the gut. Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s contains ‘Rifaximin’ that works by working on the bowel and preventing the spread of infections caused due to the loss of the beneficial gut bacteria.  Thus, Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s helps in relieving abdominal pain and diahhorea. Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s should not be used in the patients with diarrhoea complicated by fever or blood in the stool and diarrhoea due to pathogens other than Escherichia coli (E coli).

    Take Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s with or without food but at a common, same time every day. Do not take a double dose to make up the missed ones. In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as headache, peripheral oedema (leg swelling), nausea, dizziness, fatigue, ascites (excess fluid build-up in the abdomen), increased liver enzymes (ALT), and nausea. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

    Before starting Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s, please inform your doctor if you have any allergy (against any antibiotic), kidney or liver problems. Do not take Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s on your own as self-medication may lead to antibiotic-resistance in which antibiotics fail to act against specific bacterial infections. Do not take Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s for more than 3 days unless prescribed; if there is no symptomatic improvement, consult your doctor. Avoid taking Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s if you are pregnant or breastfeeding; talk to your doctor, he/she may prescribe you with alternate medicine. Rifagut 400 Tablet 10’s is not recommended for children as the efficacy and safety have not been established. Inform your doctor about all the medicines you are taking and about your health condition to rule out any unpleasant side-effects.
