    Started having diarrhea 6 months ago for no apparent reason. Finally went to Dr. in April for full physical. Every thing checked out fine, even colonoscopy was clean. Primary care Dr. prescribed this and results were immediate. Still have my gall bladder, so can't address that issue. Taste leaves a lot to be desired but effects are well worth chugging it on down! Gives me a little acid reflux ... Show Full Comment

    This drug has changed my LIFE! I was ready to go on disability due to chronic diarrhea. I had my gallbladder removed in 2009 and and could never eat the same after. I take several drugs due to an autoimmune disease,diabetes, blood clotting disorder, and HBP. I take morning drugs, afternoon, and nighttime drugs.

Just wondering if it could be from the ... Show Full Comment

    I have now been taking Questran for several years. I had my gall bladder removed awhile ago and suffered for years with daily diarrhea that made daily life and travel so difficult. In spite of visiting a number of doctors, none of them ever told me about Questran. I read about it only in a book about IBS, as I thought that must be my problem, but it was not. I then asked my family doctor about ... Show Full Comment

    I am taking this for chronic diarhea after gall bladder surgery. After ten years of this awful, dibilitating, humiliating, isolating condition, I have hope. I might be able enjoy boat rides, vacations and trips to the grocery without planning when, where or if I can get to a bathroom. WHY don't doctors warn of this problem with gall bladder surgery and recommend this drug ? My dr told me that ... Show Full Comment
