I started taking my Questran 1/2 packet at lunch time instead of dividing it in threes as I was doing, this was after my doctor's appt. on Wednesday this week, well I got two days of it in and then today no bowel movement again and I was miserable and it took quite a bit of laxatives to get me moving again ... so I e-mailed the doc and now she said she wants me to switch to Carafate, has anyone ever used this instead for the bile issues post gall bladder surgery?
Cholestyramine - Has anyone been switched to Carafate due to the severe constipation issues?

Doc's have decided to have me stop the Questran and go on Carafate ... it's not supposed to be as quite constipating ...we shall see ... lol ...
Try over the counter mirilax one cap full each day. It takes several days for it to work but after that you will be constipation free
