I've been prescribed Rifaximin (550mg x2 a day) for suspected SIBO. Is it ok to drink alcohol while taking this medicine?

In brief: Rifaximin/ETOH

Both of these substances have potential hepatotoxicity.
Taken together in moderate amounts should not be an issue. There are not serious interactions.
