One thing they forgot was DIARRHEA !!
Ever wonder what it feels to ride a rocket into space??
Taking this Medicine has a very good history of giving people this experience!
From my experience about 4 out 5 will have this reaction!!
This drug blocks dietary cholesterol from being absorbed in the small intestine. Which means if you eat a delicious ham, cheese and egg breakfast all that fat that is in it continues on down thru the large intestine, greasing it up for an easy slide of everything else that comes thru. The undigested fats then irritates the lining of the colon causing it to increase it’s pushing motion and this increases the velocity of the discharge!! You get the idea!
Not everyone get’s this but a lot do!
Another thing is by greasing up the intestines it has been known to block the ducts from the pancreas which in turn causes a back up in the pancreas. Which then leads to pancreatitis and more problems.
In my opinion a good diet with a monitoring of dietary intake of fats can give the same effect. Which ever way you choose, make sure you stay with it for a month before your next cholesterol test. That gives the body time to burn up the reserves.
Hope this helps!

Here’s a link, with all you’ll ever need to know about it!

Animals just like humans produce cholesterol which is a Liposome encasing fat. Since oil and water don’t mix! When you eat fatty foods the fats are transported to the liver where some if not all are encapsulated and released into the blood for transport out to the bodies cells. The left over fat either go back into the digestive system for disposal or stored as fat in the body.
In animals that are used for food these fat liposome’s are still in the meat and even when cooked they are still there. They can also survive the digestive process and when they move into the intestines and get into circulatory system they go right into the body and can be used just like the one’s that are produced by the liver. Since they are not produced by the liver they cannot be controlled by the body, so an excess may exist.
Different food animals have higher amounts and others lower amounts of these fat liposome’s. On the low side is fish, the high side is pork.
The drugs were talking about blocks all fats from leaving the digestive system, including the Liposome’s and basically deprives both the liver of it’s raw product (fat) and external induction of lipids (cholesterol). Which in turn leaves it in the digestive system for exit! Thus causing the circulating lipid levels to lower. When they get low enough the bodies reserves are used to maintain a survival level after that, “GOOD LUCK,” surviving!
The way it exits are what I was talking about in my previous post!
Hope this helps with your understanding of how these drugs work!
