I am so thankful for this medicine! After my gallbladder was removed, I could not cope with the constant diarrhea. I only need to take a couple times a week & feel normal. A life saver on vacations!

Had diarrhea after everything that I ate. Tried several different meds; even tried herbal supplements, but nothing worked until I was prescribed cholestyramine. It has made an amazing difference for the last 3 months. I would highly recommend speaking with your doctor about it.

I just had this prescribed. I don't handle sugar well though. Does anyone know how much sugar is in the regular fomula, or should I just return it and get the light that has nutrasweet in it?
