Answer

The goals of pharmacotherapy are to reduce morbidity and prevent complications. Drug classes that may be considered in the medical management of patients with postcholecystectomy syndrome include bulking agents, gastrointestinal (GI) antispasmodic agents, bile acid sequestrants, histamine H2 antagonists, and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).
