Colestipol Drug

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has licensed colestipol (Colestid®) to lower cholesterol levels in the blood, including total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol). As a result, using this medication may help to prevent conditions such as heart disease, angina (chest pain), stroke, or heart attack. To achieve the best results, colestipol should be used in combination with diet and exercise.
 
This medicine comes in both tablet and granule form. The tablets are large, so tell your healthcare provider if you have had swallowing or choking problems. The granules may be mixed with water, noncarbonated beverages, liquid soup, applesauce, or crushed pineapple.
