Question on the metamucil capsules


Recommended Posts

I was going to take one today, because I was having constipation problems, but they looked really big, so I opted for Milk of magnesia. Is it ok to have those capsules, with or without a fill?

im curious about these too. I bought a bottle pre-op but my paperwork says to take one pill. The serving size on the bottle says 6 pills. So i never took any, I never even opened the bottle.

How many are you all taking?

i stop taking them after i was banded. dr martinez recommended for you to take benefiber at least twice a day. just be careful because if you dont drink enough it will constipate you as well.

Hi

Taking capsules isn't a problem because of their shape.

I now take Benefibre as I was having constipation problems with Metamucil.

Drink Drink Drink !

I had used Metamucil during my preop and then occasionally switch off with the Fiber Choice for the hunger pangs. I still use Benefiber in my hot cocoa, yogurts or protein shakes daily. Currently now, I am not using Metamucil anmore (which worked for me, using 1 capsule in the morning and 1 in the afternoon) but instead, using Fiber Choice for Weight Management mainly for the hunger pangs, at 10a and 3p.

For the 'roto rooter' plumbing...I am currently using Dual-Action Cleanse (colon cleaner as seen on TV). It's a 30 day program and it's all in a pill form, no liquid to drink. I can't do the liquid stages other programs have. I have a problem of smell/flavors, etc. BUT, this is totally good for me and I am having BM daily now! YES!!! Finally, something that works and also, it gets rid of all of the toxin inside me AND I don't have the bloating feeling! YAY me! AND, you can get this at WalMart now!

Like Nicole says, keep up with the liquid drinking too, to continue with the flushing your system out!

I use/go back and forth between the Sugar Free Metamucial packets and the Fiber Choice sugar free tablets.
