Just called my GI yesterday because of awful muscle aches this past week - could be the Cholestrymine which has been a life saver . But it causes a lotof bolatingand gas.
I had 3 months of daily post surgery diarrhera .
Have been on cholestryamine since 2-1-09. GI told me to go off it 5 days and on it again 5 days and see how I did. I have been off it 2 days and the diarrhea came back witha vengeance, so I took it tonight.
I read some past posts and learned about welchol
QUESTIONS: 1 Does welchol cause muscles aches?
2. Does it cause gas and bloating? I have the worst time trying to figure out when to take this cholestryamine to avoid the gas. I moved it from lunch (no other pills then) to supper. But that is hard to figure out with other meds I need.
I want to ask my GI about welchol but need to know above first.
3. How many people are on calcium with D (caltrate) Does it really help with this issue?
I also am on two citrucil in am and 2 in pm
