Hereof, what are the side effects of Citrucel?
Citrucel side effects
- severe stomach cramps, rectal bleeding; or.
- no bowel movement within 3 days after using Citrucel.
Also, how much Citrucel should I take for IBS? A full dose of Citrucel is 4 pills or 1 TBSP (orange flavored) powder. A full dose of Benefiber (unflavored) is 2 tsp. Both are equally effective. The most common way my patients describe soluble fiber therapy is "life changing."
Also to know is, what time of day should you take Citrucel?
Using Citrucel caplets regularly, taking on a regimen (i.e., in the morning, or prior to bedtime), may help provide the most predictable results. If taking Citrucel caplets more than once a day, taking the product in the morning, before breakfast and before bedtime may help provide the most predictable results.
Is Citrucel or Metamucil better?
Citrucel (methylcellulose) is mainly insoluble fibers that are nonfermentable, so it's less likely to contribute to bloating and gas. Psyllium husk (Metamucil and Konsyl) is rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber. Generally, fiber supplements with mainly insoluble fiber may be a better option for constipation.
