I too take this for diarrhea after having my gallbladder removed. I hate the texture of it and have since made pills from it. I ordered empty 00 gelatin capsules and a capsule maker and make a bunch at once. 12 capsules are a dose but I've found I can take less depending on the type of food I'm planning on eating.

Comment:
I have started taking Questran because taking a steroid for Multiple Myeloma has caused terrible diarrhea. It has worked but has caused me to have a terrible gas problem. Any suggestions as to what to take to control the gas? Over the counter medications for gas caused by foods does not work.
