Comment:
I had my gallbladder removed in 1991 and suffered with chronic diarrhea for 9 years after. Finally my doctor prescribed Questran Light Oral and I got my life back. I only need to take 1/2 packet in 4 ozs of water before dinner each night and have not had any side effects. I don't know what I would do without this medication!!!
