What is CHOLTRAN SACHET?

Introduction:

Choltran is used to lower high cholesterol levels in your body. Cholesterol is a fatty substance that builds up in your blood vessels and causes narrowing, which may lead to a heart attack or stroke. It contains cholestyramine which belongs to a group of medicines called bile acid binding resins. Choltran works in the digestive system and absorbs the cholesterol-containing bile acids, which then pass out through the body in the faeces. It may also be used to help stop some types of diarrhoea or itching caused by any liver disease.

The most common side effects of this medicine are constipation, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea and loss of appetite. This medicine is not suitable for children below 6 years of age. As alcohol can increase your cholesterol level, it is recommended to keep your alcohol intake within the recommended guidelines as advised by your doctor. If you have been prescribed this medicine to reduce your cholesterol levels, it is recommended that you follow a low-fat diet to achieve best results. This medication comes as a powder that you mix with a non-carbonated drink or applesauce and take by mouth.
