Does anyone have anything to say pro or con for metamucil? I heard it might be safer on my body as a laxative compared to senna. I'd love some advice on this one.

When I need a laxative I take magnesium tablets. Do you need a laxative or is this part of your bulimia? Be sure to get lots of fluids if using laxatives. That is so dangerous. I know that natural laxatives are always better than drugstore stuff. Maybe talk with a whole foods store.

I'm trying to ween off them for my bulimia, but I still need them to get my body regular again. The whole foods store gave me senna tea, but it's easy to get the concentration wrong.

Magnesium is the ONLY thing that works for me. I've tried everything. I'm on calcium to avoid osteoporosis and that causes constipation and magnesium works!
