Metamucil: Metamucil is essentially a fiber supplement to your diet, and it is safe to use it on a regular basis for the long-term. In fact, it is probably good for you to do so. Eating foods that are higher in fiber is a good idea also. If you increase your fiber intake, you should also increase your fluid intake. Good luck.
