|3.||Vitamins A and D|
Clients who are taking cholestyramine (which is a bile resin) should be monitored for fat-soluble vitamin deficiencies (vitamins A, D, E, and K), as the gastrointestinal side effects of the medication can lead to reduced absorption. Niacin, folic acid, and vitamin B12 (options 1, 2, and 4) are all examples of B complex vitamins that are water-soluble.

Options 1, 2, and 4 are all water-soluble, and can therefore be eliminated.
