have tried metamusil [ psylium ] which works once inawhile. difficult to schedule as must be taken 2hrs before or after and i take am and pm meds plus calcium 2hrs before and after !!!
my calcium supplement has magnesium [ too much cuased loose stool ] have tried one colace along witht my am and pm meds as well as the psylium at another time of day -- how many colace are ok to take?
i am assuming that the pravastatin i take is not a culprit?
