FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: 

FAQ's   

  • What is the difference between the psyllium fiber in Metamucil and the methylcellulose fiber in Citrucel®?

    Fiber is the non-digestible portion of plant foods that plays a critical role in digestion. There are two different categories that all fiber products fall into: 1) soluble or insoluble, and 2) fermentable or non-fermentable.

    Soluble fiber dissolves in water, whereas insoluble fiber does not. The fiber in Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber is 100% soluble; the psyllium fiber in Metamucil is not 100% soluble.

    Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber contains only 100% non-fermentable fiber, so none of it ferments to cause excess gas like the fermentable fiber in Metamucil. This is based on laboratory tests. Results may vary.

  • How long does it take Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber to work?

    Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber can take anywhere between 12 and 72 hours to take effect.

  • Can I mix Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber in something other than water?

    Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber can be mixed with water or juice provided you use 8 ounces of a cold liquid. Cold liquid is important for dispersion. It is best to avoid mixing Citrucel® with methylcellulose into milk and carbonated beverages. Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber will release the carbonation too fast, and the drink will "erupt" and overflow the glass. We do not recommend mixing Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber with hot beverages; some of the active ingredients may come out of the solution causing you not to get a full dose. It will not mix properly and will settle out unless you keep stirring it. Also, the product may gel in hot liquids.
     

  • How do Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber caplets compare to the powder in their fiber content?

    Each two-caplet dose of Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber caplets contains one gram of methylcellulose. This compares to two grams of Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber in each one-scoop dose. In other words, you will need to take four caplets to get the same amount of fiber that is in one scoop of Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber powder. Four caplets can be taken at the same time. We recommend that you drink 8 oz. of liquid with each dose of 2-4 caplets.
     

  • How long can Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber be used? Can I use it every day?

    Laxative products, including Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber, shouldn’t be used for longer than one week unless you’re directed to do so by your physician. If you encounter a situation in which you find that you need a product like Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber for a longer period of time, we would recommend that you contact your doctor for advice on the possible causes of the situation and courses of action.

    Additionally, the suggested one-week duration for using the product serves to make consumers aware that an on-going problem, such as persistent constipation, warrants medical attention. If appropriate, a physician may advise you to use the product on a daily basis. Consult your doctor to determine if a more regimented use of Citrucel® with Methylcellulose Fiber is appropriate for you.
