Welchol is indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to:

  • improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus

Important Limitations of Use

  • Welchol should not be used for glycemic control in type 1 diabetes or for the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis
  • Welchol has not been studied in type 2 diabetes as monotherapy or in combination with a dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitor and has not been extensively studied in combination with thiazolidinediones
  • Welchol has not been studied in Fredrickson Type I, III, IV, and V dyslipidemias

Contraindications

Warnings and Precautions

The effect of Welchol on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality has not been determined.
