INTRODUCTION

CIBOZ 200MG contains Rifaximin which belongs to the group of medicines called antibiotics. It is used to treat traveler´s diarrhea in adults when the diarrhea is not accompanied by any fever or blood in the stools, or when passed loose stools for 8 or more times in the past 24 hours. Travelers’ diarrhea is a common travel-related illness of digestive tract that commonly caused by eating contaminated food or drinking contaminated water during travel resulting in loose stools and abdominal cramps.

Rifaximin acts by inhibiting the synthesis of RNA in the susceptible bacteria, which stops bacterial transcription and arrests its growth. Along with this treatment, drink lots of fluids, such as water, squash or juice, to avoid dehydration. The duration of the treatment should not exceed more than 3 days. If you do not feel better or if you feel worse within or after 3 days of treatment, please inform your doctor. Your doctor might alter the dose or change the treatment.
