Re: Pill treatment?

I take a fiber supplement and was wondering if there was a pill form I could start taking. The medicine is some prescription and tastes really bad and makes me gag. I did not know if there was any other way to get the fiber in me. thanks

Re: Pill treatment?

Psyllium husk powder comes in a capsule form that you just swallow. My wife takes 2 at breakfast and 2 with supper just drink a glass of water each time. You can buy the capsules at most health food stores.

Citrucel also put out tablets.
