Questran is commonly prescribed for the treatment of high cholesterol and itching caused by partial biliary obstruction. As a bile acid sequestrant, it works by binding to bile acids in the intestines, preventing them from being reabsorbed. Questran comes in powder form and should be mixed with liquids before consumed. Potential side effects include constipation, stomach discomfort, and gas.
