Loosing hair and headaches on cholestyramine. Prescribed Welchol, afraid to loose more hair and more headaches. Any advice? Female 71, started diarrhea 2 years ago. Been on budisonide, caused anxiety and heart racing. Please help!
Patengland; Sorry you are having so many problems, But it really sounds like you need to see your doctor and have some of these medications changed. Don't just let them tell you it does not happen to get in and tell your doctor you had no problems with Anxiety before the Budesonide and your hair was fine before the Cholestyramine and you want them to change these. And about the Cholestyramine remember if you are not you should be taking that 1 hour before any other medication or 2 hours after you have taken your medication. If you're not doing that now you may see if that helps. Otherwise get in and see your doctor. Best of luck and hope you feel better soon. Chuck1957
