The information prevented in this website is relatively new information about a new approach to RLS and give you general information, understanding, and empowerment as a patient. It should not be used as a substitute for medical advice. Treatment for RLS with specific antibiotics directed at SIBO or low dose naltrexone directed against inflammation has not been approved by the FDA. The FDA has approved the use of a specific antibiotic treatment in June 2015 for irritable bowel syndrome which is often associated with SIBO.
The reader should not use this information to diagnose or treat a medical symptoms or disease without consulting with a physician. This breath test does not tell you whether or not you have restless legs syndrome, nor does it tell you the cause of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). The breath test is the only non-invasive method to determine the presence of SIBO; though, as with any medical tests, false-negative and false-positive test results are possible.
The information website also provides information to “off-label” use of certain medicines. The FDA gives specific indications for use of medicines. Off-label use is when an available medicine is prescribed for a different condition that the drug company has not thoroughly studied and presented data to the FDA to gain approval for a specific use or indication. This practice is common and ethical for physicians in the realm of their own practice. Nonetheless, this site does not imply that this website or physicians recommends this as a necessary practice. Dr. Weinstock does not promote off-label use of FDA-approved medications outside of his personal medical practice. He is not approved nor is he compensated by pharmaceutical companies to promote or recommend off-label use of medications.
