SkipperH--please keep in mind that the cholestyramine drug binds to T4(the thyroid hormone, thyroxine) and that could make you hypothyroid, or at least make your numbers appear hypo. Please have your numbers checked again soon, since you have been off your chol. meds, to see where they are. USUALLY in hypo, you get constipated, so I cannot explain the no-diarrhea since you've been off your meds. Just be aware of the chol. med-hypo connection.
