    Big hassle
    Reviewed Metamucilon 12/23/2019Do not start with recommended 1 tablespoon dosage. It's way too strong If you are a petite female like me (5'5 125lbs)

    Reviewed MetamucilIt worked well, but found out from taking it that I am allergic to the FD&Cyellow 6 and caused skin to itch and headaches. I do have genetic migraines and taking it increased the severity of my daily headaches. I really liked it though.

    Reviewed Metamucilon 3/2/2018I used to have A lot of cramping with bowel movements so I started using it in 1989 an have used it every day since. it has lowered my cholesterol and has helped immensely with bowel movements. I only use the coarse as the smooth doesn’t work for me. I use the unflavored.

    Reviewed Metamucilon 8/12/2020I eat a high fiber diet and try to drink a lot of water but was still constipated. I found that metamucil increased my constipation because I couldn't drink enough fluid to counteract the amount of fiber that I added by taking it.
