Cholestyramine is a generic medication licensed to treat high cholesterol and control itching caused by a partial biliary obstruction. It works by binding to bile acids in the intestines, preventing them from being reabsorbed back into the body. Cholestyramine is available by prescription and comes in a powder form that must be mixed with liquids. While most people tolerate the medicine well, potential side effects include indigestion or heartburn, unexplained rash, diarrhea, and loss of appetite.
