Metamucil Dr Orders

Recommended Posts

I searched for some information on this and although there are a few that touched on the subject I didn't see anything that helped me. I recently was diagnosed with an anal fissure that has since healed (yes ew and ouch). The doctor had me take a TBL of metamucil daily. Which worked. Mind you I am someone that eats fruits and veggie so lack if fiber isn't my issue. We went on vacation and I didn't take it for a week and winded up with constipation which lead to tearing again. My point is what in the heck can I take if this is not compliant? I don't enjoy the flavor in the least. Every version of it either has sugar, fake sugar or something else I can't identify.

Appreciate to hear from someone who's had similar conflict with the product and Whole 30 compliance. I am on round 1 day 4 and doing great otherwise!

Metimucil isn't the only brand. NOW makes caps and powder, no added sugars or sweeteners either. Same ingredients, psyllium. Research sugar free psyllium products.

Thanks everyone. I will have to look at that one again with no sugar as I could swear it said it had aspartame. 

The flavored ones have stevia I think but the unflavored one is compliant.
