I have mixed blessings with taking Welchol. My cholesterol is lower but other actions/drugs could have been at play. My complaint/ problem were the painful over-sized stools. After discontinuing, normality has returned but now expect chol. levels to rise again.

Been taking for two months, cholesterol dropped 30 points. No side effect. Had been taking a statin, was miserable on it. This is easy. Take three in the morning and three at dinner time.
