Hi Tina, you can find the FDA information here: https://www.drugs.com/pro/cholestyramine.html and also the consumer information here: https://www.drugs.com/cdi/cholestyramine-powder.html
Your gastroenterologist knows far more of your medical history than we do but some cursory reading indicates it should be safe.
