My diarrhea wasn't every day but it was enough to make you mad. Every time I would try to go somewhere I would have to turn around and come home. I couldn't wear my seatbelt in the car. And if I knew I had ... Show Full Comment

    After pregnancy and birth of my child I had to have my gallbladder removed due to it being diseased and having stones. Since then I have had cronic diahrrea and it was controling my life..

    I had parts of small and large intestine removed, therefore inhibiting my bile absorbtion. The excess bile in my intestines led to many trips to the bathroom. I started taking Questran, which is a powder and it worked OK once I found the correct dosage. Just started taking Colestipol pills, 2 mgs 2x/day, which is easier to take than powder.

    Comment:
    My Dr. prescribed this for chronic diarrhea. I've been on it for at least two years . Some days it works but more often than not it doesn't.

This has gotten steadily worse since my gallbladder was removed in 1983 ... Show Full Comment
