    When you travel, you're at risk.

    Travelers’ diarrhea, or TD, is one of the most common travel-related illnesses, ambushing millions of travelers every year. It’s most often caused by food or drink contaminated with E.coli bacteria. Depending on where you’re going, and when, there’s up to a 70% chance you could get TD.

    Nobody goes away to sit on the toilet.

    TD isn’t always serious, but it can last for up to a week, with diarrhea that may be accompanied by other unpleasant symptoms like bloating, cramping, gas, and frequent urges to go to the toilet. Symptoms that can take a serious bite out of your precious travel plans.

What to Expect with AEMCOLO

What is AEMCOLO used for?

AEMCOLO is not for everyone. Do not take AEMCOLO if you have a known allergy to rifamycin or any other rifamycin antibiotics or any of the components in AEMCOLO. You should not use AEMCOLO if you have a fever and/or bloody diarrhea.

What WARNINGS and IMPORTANT INFORMATION should I know about AEMCOLO?

Stop taking AEMCOLO if diarrhea gets worse or lasts more than 48 hours and notify your healthcare provider. With all antibiotics, there is a chance you could experience diarrhea caused by an overgrowth of bacteria (C. difficile). This can cause signs of disease ranging from mild diarrhea to life-threatening disease of the bowel. AEMCOLO safety and how well it works in children less than 18 years old has not been studied. AEMCOLO does not treat viral infections (for example, common cold or flu).

The usual dose is 388 mg (2 tablets) by mouth 2 times a day (in the morning and evening) for 3 days.

  • AEMCOLO tablets should be swallowed whole with a full glass of liquid (6-8 ounces).
  • AEMCOLO must not be taken at the same time with alcohol.
  • AEMCOLO tablets must not be chewed, crushed, or broken.
  • AEMCOLO may be taken with or without food.

When taking AEMCOLO for an infection due to bacteria, it is common to feel better before the antibiotic therapy is finished. It is important to take the antibiotic exactly as directed. Do not skip doses or end before all the medication is taken. If you do, you may lower how well the drug will work and may increase the chance of the bacteria becoming resistant.
