Not specifically, but my dr did give me Cholestyramine.  I think the mechanism is similar.  This is an off label use .  It's a bile acid sequestrant, and can help with acid output causing diarrhea.   It comes in a powder that you mix with liquid.  I found it easier to make a paste, swallow that, then drink a glass of plain water.

 Yes, I took Cholestyramine for years, no longer works for me. 
was wondering if any one had success with Colesevelam pills?

As Girlunky says, this looks very similar to cholestyramine. It seems to be available as a tablet or in chewable form (as well as powder), which might be more convenient to take. It may be just the thing for you, but I don’t know what you mean by “diarrhea,” since all J-pouchers have moderately loose stools. Some possible descriptions that would be clearer are things like 1) watery stools, 2) urgency, 3) frequency, or 4) watery, burning stools. Each of these might have different treatments, even though all could be called “diarrhea.”
