... cholestyromine to flush the med out of my system. Can anyone provide me with any info on pregnancy success in situations like mine?
Here's some information from the manufacturer:
"Cholestyramine has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. Because cholestyramine is not absorbed after oral administration, direct fetal harm is not expected. Impairment of absorption of fat soluble vitamins and other nutrients as well as effects of reduced lipid concentrations may be of concern, although the drug has been used successfully during pregnancy. Cholestyramine should only be given during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk."
At the link below is the procedure for cholestyramine administration if you'd like to compare it to yours, and at the bottom of the page are links to other related things like the pregnancy support group. You'll have to scan through that group's questions to find someone in a similar situation as yourself unless you know a shortcut. I scanned a few pages but didn't come up with any situations like yours. There are many more pages.
