What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Questran Lite is a prescription cholesterol lowering medication that comes as an oral powder and is mixed into liquids for administration. Cholestyramine is a bile acid-binding resin that removes bile acid from the body, which prompts the liver to make more bile acid by using cholesterol in the blood. It will be prescribed along with guidelines for dietary changes to effectively lower cholesterol levels and avoid the risks of high cholesterol. Cholestyramine may also be used to treat itching caused by bile duct disease or partial biliary obstruction.

You can buy Questran Lite with a prescription, and your best price on it will be when you order medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.


Medication is mixed into liquid (water, juice, milk) and taken orally 1 or 2 times a day as indicated in your prescription.

Doses are measured with the provided scoop or by individual Questran Lite sachets, and you should mix the medication into at least 2 to 6 ounces (60 to 180 milliliters) of your liquid.

Rinse your glass with more liquid and drink the rinsed liquid to be sure that you have taken the entire dose.

Questran Lite powder may also be mixed into watery soups, applesauce, or pulpy fruit which produces a lot of juice when pulped (pineapple or peaches as examples).


The active ingredient in Questran Lite is Cholestyramine.
