Cholestyramine is an older type of medication used for binding up cholesterol and bile salts in the GI tract. It is a type of adsorption resin granule which is mixed with water and taken several times daily, still being used today for those who are intolerant of the newer "statin" agents like Zocor/Lipitor.
