In brief: Cholestyramine

in general, cholestyramine is a very well-tolerated drug.
The most common side effects relate to the digestive tract, including constipation, abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting. It is rare for any more serious side effects to occur. If you're having problems with the medication, contact your doctor or pharmacist. Good luck.
