MS Oral Medications Cholesterol Constipation and Metamucil

A picture of me.

That would be me!

Multiple Sclerosis, being a nerve disease, often can cause the person with ms to experience constipation. But did you know that if you use one of the approved oral medications for multiple sclerosis, or any oral medication for that matter, and also taking metamucil which uses psyllium husk as its main ingredient you could be blocking your bodies ability to absorb your medication?

Bulk-forming fiber like psyllium husk can effect how well your body can absorb medicines taken by mouth. If you are on a oral ms drug or other oral medication you need to take your medications either two hours before or after you take something like metamucil no matter whether it is in pill form or mixed in water and drank. And this would also include the use of bulk-forming fiber as a treatment for high cholesterol as well.

For more dietary suggestions ask your doctor or get a referral to a registered dietitian!
