On this episode, I discuss rifaximin pharmacology.
Rifaximin is most commonly used in hepatic encephalopathy and C. difficile infection.
Rifaximin systemic absorption is minimal so that is why it is primarily only used for GI conditions.
Drug interactions with rifaximin are fairly minimal compared to its cousin rifampin which has tons of drug interactions.
I discuss important drug interactions on the podcast, be sure to check out my latest project which is a 200+ page book on managing drug interactions in primary care.
