Welchol (colesevelam) is a medication used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise to treat high levels of cholesterol in the blood.

Welchol works by removing bile acids from the body and lowering levels of LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol. In addition, Welchol is indicated as the only FDA-approved medication with a single active ingredient proven to lower both high blood sugar (A1C) and LDL cholesterol together.

Use and Dosage

Take this medication by mouth with a meal, usually 1 to 2 times daily or as directed by your doctor. Take the tablet form with a liquid (such as water, or milk). If you have trouble swallowing the tablet, talk to your doctor about switching to the powder form of this medication.

If you are using this medication’s powder form, pour one packet into a glass. Add one cup (8 ounces/240 millilitres) of water, fruit juice, or diet soda. Stir the mixture well and drink all of it. Do not take the powder without mixing it in liquid.
