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!

. Most Days If I Dont Take Immodium At Night For The First Hour I Can Go To The Toilet Up To 7 Times Does Anyone Have This Problem.

. Most Days If I Dont Take Immodium At Night For The First Hour I Can Go To The Toilet Up To 7 Times Does Anyone Have This Problem.

First thing in the morning if I don't take immodium at night I can go to the loo up to 7 times in the first hour. My doctor reckons this part of the IBS but when your staying at someone's house with only one bathroom it gets a bit embarrassing also we travel a lot and that is the same when your back and for the washroom. Has anyone else experienced this and can they tell me how to cope.

Hi, I Am So Fed Up Of Having To Rush To Toilet With Diarrhoea, & Not Always Getting There In Time.

Hi, I Am So Fed Up Of Having To Rush To Toilet With Diarrhoea, & Not Always Getting There In Time.

I’ve been like this for many years but it’s getting much worse as I’ve got older, I’m now 68 yrs. & have had many accidents during this time. I’m at my wits end as this is controlling my life. I am otherwise fit & healthy
Doctor has prescribed suppositories which I use for every bowel movement, if I didn’t use these I would get all of the symptoms of wanting to go, but unable to go, until I had to rush to the toilet with chroni diarrhoea, & would be lucky if I made it in time. Don’t know what… read more
