    I was placed on Questran after surgery for Crohn's disease 39 years ago. Still must take it everyday, but worth the trouble.

    Started taking it after surgery for Chron's, had part of small intestine removed and small portions on ascending and descending colon. Can't miss a dose without frequent flights to the bathroom with diahrea. Taste horrible but it works wonders!

    I was prescribed this medication for chronic diarrhea associated with having my gall bladder out in july 2009. i now am able to enjoy going out to eat with my family and friends and do not have to worry about the bathrooms being near. i mix it with an orange drink and it takes the chalky taste away and you dont even know you are drinking it.
