I recently started taking metamucil, one tablespoon, three times a day. I am still taking prednisone (50mg) and asacol. How does the metamucil affect the other drugs? Currently I take the metamucil a couple of minutes before I take the prednisone.
Asacol 12 per day
Prednisone, 50mg since Aug 25/09
Remicade since Jan 07

I'm about 100% sure it's safe to take them together, no drug interactions between the 2, but you could always call your pharmacist and ask if metamucil interacts with it or any other med you'd be taking.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

Don't take your meds 2 hours before and after you take Metamucil. It says that on the label.

The metamucil will "glom" onto the other meds and pull them out of your system before they have a chance to get into your bloodstream. That is why the 2 hour wait.
