I have read a few threads that say that there is a pill form of Questran.  I asked my doctor about it and he acted like it was only in the powder form.  Deos anyone know???

That would be great if there was. My doctor gave me Questran too in powder form.  I hate drinking that crap, and I actually skip taking it sometimes because I just cant get it down.

Yes, there is a pill form. From what I've been told it doesn't work as well though. Although a few here have claimed it helped. I hate taking the powder myself, but I think it's what also helps to soak up the bile and stuff. Since it saves my butt, literally, I don't want to take the risk! :)
