What If I Take an Overdose?

Since WelChol does not get absorbed into the body, there is little risk of toxic effects, although bothersome digestive side effects may occur. However, if you happen to take too much, you should still seek medical attention.

How Should the Medication Be Stored?

WelChol should be stored at room temperature in a tightly closed container. It should be protected from light and moisture.
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you are taking WelChol twice a day and miss the first dose, take the total daily dose all at once with your next meal. If you miss the dose for the entire day, skip the missed dose(s) and continue with your normal dosing schedule. Do not take a double or extra dose.
