I find it unpleasant to take. The medicinal quantities are high and it causes constipation.

Comment from: Jay, 55-64 on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: September 16

I had my gallbladder removed in 1971 at age 19. I had chronic diarrhea for 30 years before I was put on the Colestid. It has saved my life. Only problem I have is it gives me horrible, earth rumbling farting! Guess it's a pay off but whew! Wish there was something that helped with the gas from it.

Comment from: Mrs C, 55-64 on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: October 21

I was given this medication to lower my cholestrol...it did not work...and my cholestrol actually increased..214 to 256. In reading other reviews it appears it's best used for intestinal/gall bladder problems. Something I do not have.
