Questran & meal times?

I've been using Questran for 10yrs now but even after all this time the best timing when to take Questran eludes me. Some say take with meals, just causes the most awful painful bloating for me. I've heard never ever take it on a empty stomach etc. Timing appears critical with this stuff so I would appreciate any other experiences on how to take it successfully without getting the awful bloating.

Sorry Grant, my daughter took that drug but only for two weeks. They thought she might have bile acid malabsorption but it didn’t help her diarrhea so nope it was just her Crohn’s. She didn’t have the problem with bloating that you mention but it is listed as a side effect. She did however get very sick from it. I think it might have aspartame in it and she can’t process aspartame.
