Anyone use Metamucil Clear and Natural for a child with constipation?

Just wondering if it caused them to get a stomach ache? The one I am referring to is made with Inulin Fiber. Not sure if that makes much of a difference but wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

  • NO!!!! Metamucil helps to build bulk and is never to be used for constipation! Use the "P" diet! Peaches Pears and Prunes. Whether fresh, in juice or a fruit cup. This will naturally make them go!

  • My son has bowel issues and his dr prescribed him Miralax and then Lactulose for it. Before he had the prescriptions I'd give him pedialax and it worked well.
