I take nexium in the morning and am taking the member's mark calcium but it does have the magnesium in it. I seem to not be too bad as long as I don't move around much and eat pretty bland foods. Actually, it seems like I am almost better if I eat an ample amt of certain things like instant mashed potatoes and bread. Could they be soaking up the acid? Anyway, I was on the cholestyramine but wanted to go off of it for a while to see if it made any difference in my liver function numbers. It didn't so I suppose I could go back on it, however, I see that one of the side effects is possible complete blockage of the biliary system. That seems pretty grim so I'm a little nervous about going back on it. There is the pill form that I am considering, Colestid. http://www.gihealth.com/html/education/printable/printBileSaltDiarrhea.html has an interesting pamphlet on this subject.
