Hi there,
This is Dr. D.J., experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Yes ofcourse.
Now problem with that.
Welchol is a bile acid binder.
Bile acid irritation can cause diarrhea sometimes.
Hence, welchol can help with the symptom.
Hence this can be taken following weight loss surgery if needed.
This also lowers your cholesterol.
Best wishes,
