Product Details

Colestid (Colestipol) is a medication used to treat high cholesterol. Colestid lowers “bad” cholesterol in your blood, also called LDL (low-density lipoproteins) cholesterol. It does this by binding with bile acids in the intestines, which forms a complex that can then be removed through excretion. This increased output of bile acids leads to an increase of receptors in your liver that can reduce LDL cholesterol levels, which in turn lowers the overall level of the bad cholesterol. Lowering your LDL cholesterol may reduce your risk of hardened arteries, which can lead to heart attacks, stroke, and circulation problems.

Common side effects of Colestid include constipation or hemorrhoids. Contact your doctor immediately if you notice more serious side effects such as trouble swallowing, severe constipation or stomach pain, or black, bloody, or tarry stools. If you notice any signs of an allergic reaction, seek emergency medical attention.

You should not take Colestid if you are allergic to Colestipol. To make sure this medication is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have trouble swallowing, constipation or hemorrhoids, blockage in your intestines, a stomach or digestive disorder, liver disease, a thyroid disorder, a bleeding disorder, a history of major stomach or bowel surgery, or if you have a vitamin A, D, E, or K deficiency. Talk to your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding in order to discuss any possible risks.

Questions and Answers

1. What precautions should I take while taking this medication?
Answer: Avoid taking other medications at the same time you take Colestid. Take your other medications at least 1 hour before or 4 hours after you take this medication. This medication can cause constipation. Avoid this by drinking 8 to 12 full glasses of water every day. Ask your doctor before using a laxative or stool softener.

2. Can children use this medication?
Answer: Colestid is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18 years old.
