Colesevelam Medicine

People with high levels of cholesterol may benefit from colesevelam hydrochloride (WelChol®). It also is approved to treat type 2 diabetes. This drug comes in tablet form and is usually taken once or twice a day with meals. To ensure its effectiveness, colesevelam must be accompanied by changes in diet and exercise.
 
Although this medication is effective, it is not appropriate for everyone. For example, colesevelam may not be safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and people with a history of pancreatitis, bowel problems, or difficulty swallowing may need to use a different product.
