A surgeon has prescribed cholestyramine for me recently in an attempt to firm up my stool enough to prevent leaking into a pouch-vaginal fistula and I have some questions about it.
Is it best to divide the dose into twice a day? I mix other powders into yogurt in the morning. Does it make sense to include cholestyramine powder in the mix or might it have a negative effect on the teeth if taken that way?
A quick search on this site isn't leaving me terribly hopeful that it will help a great deal but I'll certainly try. My stool is often fairly firm and it's only at times that it is a real problem. I'm wondering if I take this regularly if I'll develop consitipation. I could never really find the 'sweet spot' with Immodium but hopefully will with this.
Any experience/suggestions you can share is appreciated.
