    Good evening. Sorry about that. Please what do you mean by SIBO? Do you have abdominal pain? When did you notice this feeling? Are you constipated? Awaiting your response. Thanks

    Ok. My advice first you would be to see a gastroenterologist for evaluation and management. But there a few things you can do to help improve your condition. Take lots of fruits and vegetables to help improve your digestion. Also lots of water for same reason. Regular exercise will help to improve your metabolism. Taking garlic has been known to offer some relief. Avoid foods that worsen the bloating. Hopefully your visit with your doctor will reveal any other associated conditions if present. All the best to you

    Hello. We can't prescribe drugs that are not OTC and that includes antibiotics. They will be prescribed for you by your doctor. Take care
