In brief: Yes - or any drug
Questran (cholestyramine) is a old medication for lowering cholesterol by binding bile salts in the intestine, and thereby removing cholesterol from the body.
It also binds most medications, thereby preventing them getting into you to work. You should try to take Questran several hours away from any other medication.
