What is Questran Lite (Cholestyramine Resin) used for?

Questran Lite (Cholestyramine Resin) is an oral medication used to reduce high levels of cholesterol. It operates by reducing elevated levels of "bad" cholesterol (low density lipoproteins) while raising the levels of "good" cholesterol (high density lipoproteins) to prevent blockage of the arteries. This can reduce symptoms such as high blood pressure, heart disease, or potential heart attacks. It is normally prescribed along with a balanced diet and regular exercise to get the most effective results from treatment. Your doctor may also prescribe the use of this medication for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.

The medication come in premeasured sachets and should be completely dissolved in a glass of water before use. Always refill the glass slightly and drink it to make sure the entire dose is consumed.
