Re: When you take metamucil, is it normal......
It is not unusual-- Metamucil contains Psyllium which is a natrual fiber that absorbs alot of water and expands rapidly, it digests, ferments and forms gas. Some people are more sensitive than others-- many of us react differently. My wife takes it in a capsual form so it get to the intestines before working.
When starting to use it, you should start off at a low dose if using the powder form then increase it as your system gets use to it--- and usually the GAS goes away.
