    The effect of cholestyramine in post-vagotomy diarrhoea has been assessed under double-blind conditions. Cholestyramine produced a significant improvement in frequency, urgency, and consistency of stool as well as episodic diarrhoea. Faecal bile acid excretion was significantly higher in the post-vagotomy group when compared with normal controls. These findings confirm the effectiveness of cholestyramine and support the concept of a bile acid mediated aetiology in post-vagotomy diarrhoea.
