Why don't you try just reducing the dosage?? 6 pills seems rather ridiculous to me. I am on it, granted only 1 tablet at night before bed, but it works wonders. And I decided the right dosage for myself at the end of the day. We are all responsible for monitoring ourselves as doctors can only do and know our bodies so much. We are our own best judges.

Oh my! It is so disheartening in how the doctors don't tell us about these bad effects! I have been off welchol two days now and can already tell a difference! Can you tell me what you are taking now? I am going to try taking lecithin, to break down fats in meals. Taking when I eat. I haven't started that yet but will post in a week or so to let you know how that works.
