I've used this product for years to supplement my less than perfect diet -- too few dark greens!. I used to take one a day with my late night snack 30+ min before bedtime and had zero problems with constipation! Recently, I tried eating more fruits, nuts, greens and exercise -- as most doctors suggest! But, I only ended up in the hospital with painful colon infections and later diagnosed with diverticulitis -- bummer, no more strawberries for me! ... My gastrointernologist said he takes this same WM product once a day too! Now, I've had to increase my dosage to two a day: at breakfast and dinner with a full 10 oz cup of tea. I've noticed when I don't take it I have constipation and pebbles only, but when I do take it I have easier and bigger stools! Thank goodness this is anonymous!!! ... As for the warning on choking: It took me a while to remember when I first took them, I'd stick my head under the faucet for water to swallow. Don't ever do this!!! It did cause me to choke a couple of scary times. Always take them with a cup of liquid in hand and take another gulp immediately if there's any sign of trouble going down! Since using a cup, I've not had any problems! I'm not sure I'd want to give this product to a child though for this very reason -- a bit big to swallow and might need gulps of liquid right away! Otherwise, I'm extremly pleased with this product, find them to be very effective and highly recommend them for teens and adults only!!! ... Also, I've never noticed a problem with gas or nausea, but then I've always taken them with a meal and never less than 30 min before lying down on a sofa or bed! My father has used them for years too, though he's up to four a day now -- which my doctor said is not uncommon for his 82 years of age!

Works well. It is good for people who want a bulk fiber supplement in tablet form, or if you can not use psyllium fiber, which is very common. Make sure you drink lots of water with this. Price was very good.

Mom uses this product and the capsules work much better for her than putting fiber into water or juice. She doesn't experience the side effects of some of the similar products.

Hi to anyone who has had surgery "down below". Or for anyone who suffers with constipation, or always 'going'. This product was recommended to me by my surgeon at UCLA - Head of his department. It cleans your colon, and keeps you regular. However, you MUST drink 8 glasses of water a day - which you should be doing anyway.

Re: Equate Fiber Laxative. I tested a pill to see what would happen in my stomach. When I placed one in a glass of water it NEVER dissolved or changed in size, even when I added some vinegar and oil. When I put a teaspoon of Metamucil in water it swells up and gets thick, just like it is supposed to.

  • A. I think all those inactive ingredients may contribute to a slight coating on this oblong shaped tablet -- making it a tad easier to swallow than a round uncoated tablet ... Don't forget the stomach has a lot of other acid and enzymes for breaking stuff down ... The water recommendation may be more for ease of swallowing and preventing choking? ... Don't know what more to tell you -- just that it works!

  • A. Keep in mind, as most caplet type pills do these days, this pill has a coating on it that dissolves in your stomach acid, not water, vinegar or oil.

  • A. Compare the ingredients of this product, and metamucil (or the equate equivalent). This product contains Calcium Polycarbophil 625 Mg Equivalent to 500 Mg Polycarbophil Bulk-Forming Laxative Where as, last I checked, the equate "bulk forming" fiber/powder is some husk/fiber. This product is calcium and some other ingredients in pill form.
