Yes I have taken Colestipol, which is the same as Colestid...and to be quite honest I hated it with a passion because it tasted horrific...yuck. I took it because a foot of my terminal ileum, ileocecal valve and my gall bladder are all in a landfill somewhere and I am not too good at breaking down fats. it tastes sick, but it does work for some people. Yes it is generally for people with high cholesterol, but it can obviously used to "bulk" things up as well. My aunt takes it for crohns and it works for her, but I took it and it didnt do anything. I hope it helps you....dont take it with water you will want to ralph.
