Sources of psyllium, such as Metamucil, treat the constipation of multiple sclerosis.
Psyllium should be taken with a full glass of water or other liquid. Without liquid, the laxative can swell in the throat and cause choking. It usually produces a bowel movement within 12 to 72 hours.
While it may take up to three days before symptoms improve, psyllium should not be taken for longer than seven consecutive days without first consulting with a medical professional.
