Xifaxan is a medication that many people are prescribed but is very hard for people to pay for out of pocket because it is expensive.

Xifaxan Prescription Discounts:
Frequently Asked Questions

Xifaxan (rifaximin) is a prescription medication that can treat a variety of conditions including traveler’s diarrhea (TD), hepatic encephalopathy in adults, and irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBS-D).

Xifaxan is available in the tablet sizes 200 mg and 550 mg.

For TD, the dose is 200 mg three times daily for three times at the onset of symptoms.

For hepatic encephalopathy, Xifaxan is dosed at 550 mg twice daily for as long as prescribed by the doctor.

For IBS-D, Xifaxan is given 550 mg three times daily for 14 days and can be used for up to two more courses in a six month period.

This medication is not for everyone. Do not take this medication if you have hypersensitivity to rifaximin or any other ingredients in Xifaxan.

There are a couple of alternatives to Xifaxan: 

As of September 2022, the average retail cost of Xifaxan is $2,299.58.

The cost of Xifaxan is dependent on the following factors:

  • The dosage amount prescribed by the doctor.
  • The location of the patient.
  • The location of the pharmacy.
  • Whether or not the patient has health insurance.

The Rx Advocates does not offer coupons but we still feel it is important that people understand how coupons work. They do not offer the type of savings that can really make a difference from month to month. When people are prescribed Xifaxan, they will go online and search for coupons and understandably so because it is expensive to pay for out of pocket. 

Xifaxan coupons still leave people paying hundreds of dollars out of pocket.

There are other names for prescription drug coupons such as copay cards, copay coupons, copay assistance programs, and pharmacy coupons. These cards represent a program that has been funded by a pharmaceutical company to help reduce the out-of-pocket costs for patients. This sounds great; however, there are limitations such as the following:

  • Coupons usually last for only a limited time. They do not provide savings from month to month.
  • Some coupons help the patient with the initial filling of a prescription but the subsequent fillings are not covered.
  • Patients will have to leave their homes to go to the pharmacy to pick up their medication(s) and present their coupons to the pharmacist. 

Prescription discount cards are cards that give people access to lower drug costs for their prescription medications. They are most beneficial for people who have to pay cash for their prescriptions. These cards are free and they are accessible to people with health insurance and to people without health insurance.

There are various savings programs that negotiate their drug discounts on medications like Xifaxan. Patients are able to obtain those lower costs through their prescription discount cards.
