Welchol Review

“My doctor put me on Welchol because my body couldn’t handle statins. So far I have low numbers and they’re stayed down since I began with the treatment. I have not had any problems or severe side effects from taking this medication. Overall this medication has helped me tremendously.” – Taylor M, Los Angeles
