    I know constipation is an side effect.Can someone suggest the best way to get the old system moving again.I take 6 metamucil tablets everyday and still no help.

    a cheap generic brand of Docusate Sodium, 100 mg per day, it's a stool softener. takes a few days to start working, but works great for me.

    I also have recurring constipation from ultram. One or two bowls of shredded wheat cereal seems to help more than other fiber products. Good luck!!

    I drink metamucil every day, have for years and years. When they came out with the tablets I thought I'd give them a try. Low and behold they did not work at all! I went right back to my smooth orange/sugar free metamucil and got right back on track. It's just like drinking a glass of tang. Problem solved.

    Good luck,
