Prodiem (brown can) gave me less gas than Metamucil. I stoped taking metamucil because i was always bloated on it. I now take flax seeds with my cereal. When i first took the metamucil it gave me extreme pain that i had trouble moving, gradualy my body got used to it and the pain + gas got less and less but never totaly went away. My waist size was bigger with metamucil also, i can get into pants now that i couldnt before and i haven't lost weight.
Can you feel the bubbles?

if this is the case, am I safe to start on a little metamucil each day to stay regular
I missed this, but I would think that statement applies to "normal" people. Miralax would be better because it cannot give you gas.
