Side effect rates for Colestid (colestipol)
Common concerns from people taking Colestid (colestipol)Final section. Do you want to return to drug navigation?
- I am not taking this medication for my cholesterol, but for the fact of having my gallbladder removed and as a result, chronic diarrhea. It has worked very well for me, but the cost has gone off the charts. I can't afford the price going fro $54 for a three months supply to $421. I'll have to look for something else.
- Was told to take it with meals, and that other meds must be taken 1 hr. before colestipol or 4 hrs. after. Was hard to find a schedule to match that, but even taking 2 of them once a day lowered my cholesterol to normal levels.
