Are there any Precautions and Drug interactions of Colestid?


You should avoid taking Colestrid at the same time as other medications. Colestid can interfere with the absorption of other drug, making their therapeutic value less effective.

To avoid constipation, be sure to drink as much water as possible throughout the day; preferably 8-12 8 ounce glasses. If constipation occurs, ask your doctor whether or not a stool softener or laxative is right for you.

Some other medications, including both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC), vitamins, and herbal remedies may interact with Colestid making it either more potent, or reducing your body’s ability to absorb the other medication. Be sure to tell you doctor or pharmacist about any medications, vitamins, or herbal products you may be taking.
