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?
