Any suggestions for the constipation? I've increased my fiber, and I'm drinking over 100 ounces of water a day, and nothing's helping. I want to try metamucil, but I'm afraid it's citrusy and will make my heartburn worse.
Metamucil makes pills- you have to take them with 8oz of fluid, but at least you don't have to taste the stuff at all! These have been fairly successful for me. There are just some situations where NOTHING will work (like travel).
Also - drinking lots of liquids (>64oz), metamucil pills in the AM (although my nurse mom tells me I should take them 2-3 x per day). and Raisens (Prunes never appealed to me).

You want a stool softener, not a laxative. I took (and still am thanks to the hemmorhoid) generic colace.
