Default Welchol administration

I have just started Welchol after having severed muscle pains and weakness with Zocor and Mevacor. Although muscle weakness is listed as a side effect, my physician states it is much less.<br>My concern and questions are as follows. Although I can find nothing in the product literature, both the pharmacist and my physician tell me not to take my other medications at the same time I take the Welchol. As I take a medication for arthritis that needs to be taken with food and the Welchol does also, this is creating a scheduling dilemma for me. As both are taken twice a day that adds to the problem.<br>Has anyone else been told this and if so, what was the reasoning?<br>Thank you.
