The article ‘Travellers’ diarrhoea: a guide for GPs’ by Dr Jonathan Cohen published in the May 2019 issue of Medicine Today (pages 57 to 60) contains an error in Box 4 entitled ‘Self-treatment strategies for travellers’ diarrhoea’ on page 59. The final row incorrectly states that rifaximin 200 mg three times daily for three days is an off-label use of the drug. This is the TGA-approved dosage.
