I saw your post in the bile salts thread. Just wanted to let you know that there is a pill form. My bottle says "Colestipol HCL". But you know that sometimes they have to cut off letters of the drug name in order to fit them on to their labels. My dosage is 4 tabs once a day. It isn't as easy to tailor the dosage with a pill, which is what I do with the powder so that I can take only enough to stop the D, but not so much that I have any of the side effects. Just passing it on. Also, my pills are a year and a half old, so there is a chance that they took it off the market.
