Has anyone else gotten severely dry skin while taking welchol? I've had mildly dry skin all my life, but since getting on welchol about 9 months ago, my finger tips get so dry they crack.

The Mayo Clinic has quite an extended list of side effects pertaining to this drug, but oddly enough, I can't seem to find any side effects of WelChol (Colesevelam) that relate to dry skin.

Maybe you can see if there's anything listed there that might be in line with what you're experiencing:

The only conclusion I can reach is that the medication may be making you dehydrated at a much quicker rate than you might usually be. So drinking lots of water may help lessen the severity of dry skin.

Have you tried putting lotion or oil on for moisture?

Yes, I have to apply hand cream (Neutogena) to my finger tips 1-2 a day. Prior to taking Welchol I was only applying lotion once a day.

I'll check out the link. Thanks.
