- Metamucil is a "fiber laxative that is used to treat occasional constipation or bowel irregularity." It mainly uses psyllium fiber as its core ingredient.
- Metamucil takes about 12 to 72 hours to work.
- Unfortunately, bloating is one of metamucil's biggest side effects.
- This is not surprising considering that metamucil forms a psyllium gel that moves through the digestive system, trapping the waste as it moves down.
- As the laxative does not work immediately, the substances that are trapped can release gases and cause bloating.
- Usually it takes several days for the stomach to adjust to the drug and to stop the bloating.
- Metamucil is either very popular with customers or not popular at all. The majority of the reviews are still 5 stars.
- One of the many complaints customers have voiced include the increased heaviness they feel after taking the drug.
- People also complain about bloating and abdominal pain.
- Some costumers with constipation have also complained that taking metamucil has worsened their condition.
