Colestipol is an anion-exchange resin used to lower blood cholesterol levels.

To add some more specifics, it is a bile acid sequestrant, it actually binds the bile acids in your body, to turn them into a substance that is then eliminated as waste. It is most commonly used to help lower LDL cholesterol.

Typical side effects may include nausea, gas, and constipation.
