Same problem as others have noted: diarrhea after gall bladder removal. And, no one ever mentioned this prior to surgery. Questran has given me my life back. Just mix with water and I take it mid-morning. I can eat normally -- jello, popsicles, rice, and apple juice were getting old. I can socialize again without fear of surprise diarrhea.

To stop the muscle pain caused by statin, my doctor prescribed Questran Lite. Not only it never stopped the muscle pain, it gave me five other side effects - bloating, abdominal pain, itching around the anus, gas,dizziness and so forth.

I have stents in my bile ducts due to restrictions of the ducts. Questran assists in easing itching but by no means eliminates it. I am also taking Urso to assist in assisting bile to pass easier through my ducts. This has help bring my enzyme numbers down but priuitus still continues. Unfortunately, I believe it is something I will just have to live with.
