It's so annoying how sometimes even the cholestyramine goes right through. I marvel at ppl who have a nice turd once a day. lol

How well does cholestyramine work for you and how often do you take it?

I am wondering if some of the newer intestinal irritation is from the cholestryamine light.
Anyone else find cholestryamine irritates the CD?
