I couldn't take much of the cholestyramine powder because it made me gag.  My GI suggested colestipol tablets.
I found them easy to take and they seemed to be reducing  my frequency.  I gradually increased the dosage to 4 a day after about a week.  Then I developed a sudden blockage to the point I was afraid I'd have to go to the ER.  I took some entocort and it resolved.  I've cut back to 2 a day and my stomach now seems intermittantly upset.
