hi jmc09, I am in the same boat, i have just recently started taking Qestron Light, apperantly the only diff between questron and questron light is light has artificail sweetener instead of sugar. Anyways its only been a couple of days for me (1 satche a day) and so far i am worse then usual,,,I would similarily love to hear from anyone who has taken this med and how fast they responded.
I tried Questran for my D (I still have gall blader) around half a month ago. And I felt myself worse after one day, I felt urgency and a huge pain with it and I needed to run to toilet and I didn't have it without Questran.If you still have gall blader and is trying Questran for your D I read somewhere that you should stop it after a week if it doesn't help you, because of side effects.
Generally Questran is either it works or it doesn't. So if by the end of a week (and maybe another week at a higher dose if that is an option) or so if there is no difference it probably isn't for you.No treatment works for everyone, but all of them work for some people.I don't know of any dangerous side effects that you will have if you keep taking it, but it isn't something that is likely to build in effectiveness over time like some treatments and taking something you don't need and won't help doesn't make much sense even when it is low risk. You may need to make sure you don't take it with other medications or with vitamin supplements, but that isn't a major reason to make it too dangerous to take if it isn't helping.
