Medication interaction with Metamucil?
« on: June 04, 2014, 08:19:57 PM »
So this is going to be really silly, but I am going to go ahead and ask what everyone thinks anyways. So I am currently taking 40 mg of Tecta a day, 10 mg of Domperidone 4 times a day and also birth control. Now here's the funny part; I would like to take Metamucil again daily as I have really benefited from it before. Would it interact badly with any of these meds? I know its just psyllium fiber but I am horribly paranoid about most things. Please give me some input :)

I would call a pharmacy (even the Walmart or Target ones!) and ask them. The ones I've called have been very helpful when I gave these types of questions.

Personally I dumped the Metamucil and just bought some psyllium fiber husks - the Metamucil has a bunch of chemicals you don't need (sweetners, colors, etc). 

Pound per pound the husks are also cheaper than Metamucil and have a nice nutty flavor.  Plus, it's the husks that do the job anyway so the other stuff is of no value to me.

Let us know if they say there are any interactions!

Thanks guys! I might just go with buying the husks then. I am no fan of additives as they are already in much of what we eat. Thank you both for your input!
