I went for a cat scan today and I have diarrhea which I think it's from the barium. Brown in color. Other people are saying they got white colored diarrhea from drinking it. Any one else had regular brown color?

If you had taken barium relatively recent like today or even a few days ago then it is possible that you haven't passed the barium that being said white stool does not occur with everyone, but it is a fairly common sight. As to the diarrhea part barium usually causes constipation so drink extra water.
