Welchol is used along with diet and exercise to treat high levels of cholesterol. It is also used along with other medicines to control the blood sugar level of patients with type 2 diabetes. Welchol reduces bad cholesterol by increasing the removal of bile acids from the body. The body replaces the lost bile acids by converting cholesterol from the blood to bile acids. Welchol is available as a brand name drug only; a generic version is not yet available. The average price of Welchol is over $500 per 180 tablets.
