Fibercon or Metamucil?
I have lately been experiencing constipation as a side effect of some medication I have to take, and also probably as a result of a low carb diet. I realize I probably need more fiber, and am wondering if there is a real difference between fibercon and metamucil, which one is better? I think I would prefer the Fibercon pills, because of fewer carbs, (I really want to stick to my diet), but if Metamucil is better, maybe I should go with that. Also, are these products safe to take over a long period of time? How about Milk of Magnesia? I have read that it is not a stimulant, so is it safe for long term use? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
