Has Anyone Been Prescribed Cholestyramine Powder?

Has Anyone Been Prescribed Cholestyramine Powder?

I have been taking this daily since April 22nd to help me with diarrhea. So far, it doesn't seem to help. If anything, I'm experiencing more abdominal gas and cramping. I was told to take it once daily. Today is May 16th and I'm waiting for a call back from my gastrointestinal Dr. Anyone have any feedback to offer? Ty!
