Can the orange flavored metamucil change the color of your stool
Hello,
Welcome to justanswer.com and thank you for your question.
I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort. I will do whatever I can to help answer your questions.


Yes,colored metamucil can change the color of your stool.

You don't digest the coloring agent present in metamucil and it goes through, changing the color of your stool.

It is very common for people to have color change of their stool when they take flavored/colored metamucil.

It will get back to normal,once you stop taking it.

Hope this helped.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Thank you for your business!

Kind Regards,

will it change it a orangish/reddish color? or is that abnormal?

Dear XXXXX,
Thank you for asking follow up question.

Yes,it is very common to have reddish colored stools when you take the metamucil of orange flavor.

If you are having orange/red/pink colored stool after taking metamucil,it is normal.It is because of the coloring agent present in the metamucil which goes undigested & comes out as it is with the stool.

It will get back to normal,once you stop taking it.

Hope this helped.
