Welchol (colesevelam HCI)

Daiichi Sankyo

Welchol (colesevelam HCI) is a type 2 diabetes oral medication in the bile acid sequestrant class of drugs. It lowers LDL (”bad”) cholesterol and A1C levels. Welchol is also available in oral suspension. Because type 2 diabetes medications act in different ways to lower blood glucose levels, doctors will often prescribe multiple drugs. Several of the more popular combinations of oral drugs can be prescribed together in a single pill. Each medication has its own side effects; read labels carefully to be sure you know what they are.
