metamucil question

I don't have some of the more awful problems I've read about on this board, but having a Metamucil wafer or two every day just seems to make everything work better for me, if you know what I mean. I really should ask my doc this, but is it OK to just make this part of my everyday diet? Or is it dangerous? Can your body become overly dependent on it? I try to eat the right diet and drink plenty of fluids, but these really seem to do the trick like nothing else.

Thanks.

Re: metamucil question

It's PERFECTLY FINE to use it as part of your daily fibre intake.
Another option would be to eat high fibre crackers such as Kashi. I love them, and they give me much less gas than the metamucil.

But, definitely using the wafers is safe.....that's what they're made for.

Re: metamucil question

All of the doctors that I have been to actually recommend taking Citricel, or Metamucil or something like that EVERY day. Along with a high fiber diet.
