Yes, but...


What are you trying to achieve--laxative effect, improved sense of evacuation, appetite suppression, weight loss, relief of bloating, etc.? Unless these are recommended by your doctor after appropriate evaluation, poly-pharmacy of multiple over-the-counter agents may not only delay your ultimate diagnosis (& identification of remedy) but may add to your problem. Get the right medical care please.

Yes, you may


Metamucil is a bulk laxative. this improves the formation of your stool, so it moves more effeciently and minimizes the risk of diverticular disease. Milk of Magnesia is a laxative, which will chemically enhance the motility of your gut. Bulk laxatives may be taken daily, but only as directed. More is not better. MOM should be used only on occasion, as directed. Good luck.
