    I couldnt live a normal life without this medication,i would have to stay in or not eat at all when i did go out. I will be a long time taker of this medication and have been taking for three years upto now without a problem also take other tablets throughout the day but work around them so that they are spaced apart from the questran. It is a bit of a juggle at first but is workable

    This is my second day of taking Questran and I find it palatable in fruit juice, it is very gritty but better than liquids I've had before scans.

    The taste is horrible, no matter what I mix it with. I've experimented.. 1/2 to full pkg. Now on 3/4 of pkg, Full pkg constipates me, 1/2 - still have diahorrea. I have been on it for 6 weeks. Headache, rumbling and passing gas.. almost as embarassing as the chronic diahorrea. Fatigue and confusion daily. I think I'll stop it and see if all of the side effects vanish. I may go back ...

    I suffered for 3 years after gall Bladder removal getting steadily worse. I got to the stage of being afraid to go anywhere and then had a very embarrassing accident. I saw a new doctor who suggested Questran I have to take it twice a day - but now I have my life back and feel like a normal person. I suggest anyone trying it to persevere - its a wonder drug !! Why don't they tell you this can ... Show Full Comment
