I've had ulcerative colitis for less than a year, dr tried to get me off of cholystramine but diarrhea comes back, what else can I try?

Diarrhea and UC. Diarrhea in ulcerative colitis implies that the colitis is not under control or in remission. Cholestyramine only treats the symptom, but there are other medicines which can get the ulcerative colitis itself under control, which will allow the diarrhea to resolve. If you have persistent diarrhea, you should see your doctor to go over those alternatives. Good luck. .
