Generally, yes.: It would be important to know what medical problems and medicines to answer that question. Generally though, yes daily psyllium is ok, as long as you are having regular bowel movements.

Psyllium: Agree with Dr. Dall-winther. In general, if taken with adequate water, it is fine to take psyllium husk daily. However, there could be specific issues that might impact this.
