Cholestyramine Light

Drug Info for cholestyramine light

Cholestyramine is used with diet changes (restriction of cholesterol and fat intake) to reduce the amount of cholesterol and certain fatty substances in your blood. Accumulation of cholesterol and fats along the walls of your arteries (a process known as atherosclerosis) decreases blood flow and, therefore, the oxygen supply to your heart, brain, and other parts of your body. Lowering your blood level of cholesterol and fats may help to prevent heart disease, angina (chest pain), strokes, and heart attacks. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Questran Light is a prescription-only medication that is taken by patients to reduce the amount of cholesterol within their body to prevent harmful conditions such as coronary heart disease and strokes. Questran Light works by converting high levels of cholesterol into bile acids for it to be released into the stool.
