I was prescribed cholestyramine after my gb back in april. But I have noticed that when I do take it it gives me horrible bloating and gas. Is that just a side effect that will go away?

Cholestyramine Question??
I have been taking cholestyramine since my gb last august. I don't remember if I had similar initial side effects since I felt so bad at the time I wanted to just curl up and die. I can tell you though that the cholestyramine has been a near miracle cure for me and I don't know what I would have done without it. My question now is when i'll be able to wean myself off of it.

That has been one of my questions to. I am hoping that I can wean myself off eventually. I could not imagine taking this stuff forever.. I recently started taking calcium carbonate and it seems to be working, hopefully very very soon I can elimate cholestyramine all together.
