Colesevelam (Welchol) belongs to a class of drugs called antilipidemics or bile acid sequestrants. Colesevelam is used to treat high levels of "bad cholesterol" (LDLs) and triglycerides (fatty acids). Colesevelam works by binding to bile acid, a precursor to cholesterol, and forming an complex that is not able to be absorbed by the GI tract. This complex is then eliminated from the body through feces. Due to the reduced level of bile acid and in an effort to keep a balance between the two levels, cholesterol is further reduced and oxidized back into bile acid.
