Reduction of cholesterol Cholestyramine Resin Questran Lite

Uses
Questran Lite (Cholestyramine Resin) is used for its cholesterol reducing properties. It works in the gastrointestinal tract, and affects the bile acid present there. The active component in this medicine functions as a bile acid sequestrant, and is commonly referred to as a hypolipidemic agent. Bile is a fluid that the liver makes to help digest fats. When taken, this medicine can bind to the bile in the intestine and stop it from re-entering the blood. The result of this is that more bile acids are released as faeces, which causes the liver to make even more bile acids using the cholesterol present in the blood, leading to a reduction of cholesterol levels.

Dosage and Administration
Questran Lite (Cholestyramine Resin) is provided as sachets. The powder in each sachet contains 4g of the active ingredient. Do not administer it as a dry powder. Instead, each sachet (containing 4g of medicine) should be added to a cup with 100ml to 150ml of water. Some people may prefer to use fruit juice. After this, it can be stirred and swallowed. Add more water to the cup and drink it to make sure that all of the medicine has been consumed. Your doctor will tell you how much to take and when it needs to be administered. Carefully follow all instructions given to you.
