    One of y’all old folks should have warned me that the Generic brand Metamucil doesn’t mix as well. It was like having a drink with sand in it.

    Lesson learned, don’t be cheap and buy the Generic Equate brand Metamucil at Walmart, buy the name brand!

    David - You should have asked first. And... you're too young for Metmucil.

    If you didn’t like that you REALLY wouldn’t like the plain organic psyllium husk my buddy drinks. It’s like super runny bran mush... I use the equate one with real sugar. I use brand name stuff when I travel as I need less since it’s fake sugar and more compact.

    Regardless, I’m 37 and metamucil has changed my life. Nice clean wipers every morning. Sometimes twice. And no more of what a buddy of mine describes as like “cleaning peanut butter out of a mop”...

    Why Metamucil? The equate brand miralax is really good. It is also a little bit easier on the system for me anyway.

    Kirkland brand is great. Been using it for years. Much cheaper than brand.

    They are two different things: Metamucil is fiber; miralax is a laxative. Metamucil is a preventative, miralax is a 'goer'.

    That's funny
    I may need to try it now, I've never experienced piles, I do want the shower afterwards.
    Sheryl Crow must be gross, proposing a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting.

    Until you've "delivered" a healthy sized brown baby boy, hard as a rock and seemingly imbedded with chards of glass, will you understand our plights. For us, daily doses of psyllium powder is a life-changing experience.

    My problem was opposite but still remedied by Metamucil. I had what I called 1.5s. Not number one but not number 2. Meta tightened that right up.

    Yep, I’m on it the rest of my life. Had some boughts with Diverticulitis, the Metamucil helps keep it at bay.
    The real Metamucil mixes well, especially with orange juice, it tastes just like orange juice. I don’t mix it with water.

    According to the bottle you're supposed to take 4 or 5 of those every day. It can get expensive if you're really trying to move the mail through.

    Fiber is one of the only supplements I've taken that has had obvious proven effects.
