Colestid Side Effects
During clinical trials, some side effects occurred infrequently in people taking Colestid. Because they were so rare, it is difficult to tell whether these side effects were actually caused by Colestid or by something else. These rare but possible Colestid side effects include but are not limited to:
- Unexplained blood in the stool
- Ulcer in the stomach or intestines (known as a peptic ulcer)
- Increase in liver enzymes
- Unexplained rash
- Itchy skin
- Muscle aches or pain
- Joint pain
- Migraine or other headache
- Decreased appetite.
You may experience some or none of the Colestid side effects listed in this article. There is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have a side effect from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, he or she will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
