This medication, Questran, absorbs everything in it's path. I take it for diarrhea not for cholesteral. If I remember correctly, I can take reg meds 1 hr before Questran and 4 hrs. later. The pharmacist didn't include these instructions with this refill. Any help would be appreciated.

This is taken directly from
"... Since questran may bind other drugs given concurrently, it is recommended that patients take other drugs at least one hour before or 4 to 6 hours after questran (or at as great an interval as possible) to avoid impeding their absorption."
