Questran is used to treat diarrhea, as excess bile acid in the intestines can lead to loose stools. In particular, patients who have had their gallbladders removed may find that they have bile-related diarrhea, as bile is normally stored in the gallbladder.
Questran comes in powder form and is mixed with water or another liquid before swallowing. It is very important to follow all directions from your doctor when taking Questran, as it might prevent the absorption of vitamins if taken long-term, which could have serious health effects if not taken into consideration.
As with all drugs, please do not rely on the information on this page or any other website for medical advice - always consult a doctor with any questions, and make sure you read all instructions carefully.
