Q: I take several medications daily-do I need to wait before taking the capsules?
A: Great question, dh! First, it's always good idea to ask your doctor whether a fiber supplement would be safe for you to consume when taking prescription medicines. If your doctor says it's fine, we recommend you separate taking your Metamucil Capsules by two hours either before or after taking your prescription medications. That's because bulk-forming fibers like psyllium may affect how well your medicines work. Please feel free to give us a call at (800) 983-4237 should you have any further questions or concerns.submitted byMetamucil - 9 months agoBrand expert
