Joylu...which one EXACTLY did you purchase? One that states it's sugar-free?
Did you take the highest dosage or smaller amount?
What are the ingredients in the one you got?
Yep, I had some discomfort when I started taking Metamucil....I used the Smooth (not sugar-free) initially, but then switched to the capsules but started off with low dosage and increased it over a few weeks.
Absolutely ditto the drinking enough water/fluids suggestion.
