Cholestyramine And Soda

Maria Says:

I found a way to drink that crap down. I put it in a can of orange soda, stir it well!! Darn if it's not easy to take. Great to take it early then don't take any drugs for four hours. After that you are home free!! I'm just grateful because my life is nearly normal and I'm as sane as I'll ever be!!??

Hello, Maria! How are you?

That's a great idea and I'm glad it's working so well for you. I'm sure this information will also help others. It can also be mixed in soups, or fruits such as applesauce.

As listed by the FDA, it's most common side effects is constipation.

Is there anything else I can help with?
