I started the metamucil last week also. I chose the flavoured one (berry) but sugar free... it is very sweet but still pretty good.
I started with one tsp per day and so far it has really increased bulk. Before that week, it was always watery and now, it seems much better. Also, I feel better. I cant say the frequency has decreased and I have to get up in the middle of the night to go, but I still feel better.
I am seeing the Doctor tomorrow, and I got the metamucil idea from his book that I bought last week. I have been seeing him for 3 yrs, and he never mentioned this, I had to learn it from his book.. .thanks doctor.
But, let me know how it continues for you, and I wil keep you updated on my progress.
Also, the tablets would seem easier to take, etc, but 2 things == you have to take quite a few which equals a greater cost, and also, you must remember to drink lots of water with the capsules.. with the ingestion and throughout the day.
