Are your bowel movements liquidy a lot of the time? Questran helps to make them more solid, which in turn helps somewhat.

Have you looked at what you're eating to try to figure out some trigger foods that are causing this to happen? I've had UC for over 18 years now and still have issues with sugary foods (it doesn't help that I have a sweet tooth...). Most everything else that causes my colitis to act up I've either cut back or totally cut out of my diet.

You might also try the Metamucil fiber wafers. I use the cinnamon ones. They aren't great, but they do help absorb some of the liquid to make bowel movements less frequent.
