Questions & Answers for Equate Equate Fiber Therapy Bulk-Forming Laxative 625mg, 140ct

Question

Equate Fiber Laxative. Why don't they dissolve?

Re: Equate Fiber Laxative. I tested a pill to see what would happen in my stomach. When I placed one in a glass of water it NEVER dissolved or changed in size, even when I added some vinegar and oil. When I put a teaspoon of Metamucil in water it swells up and gets thick, just like it is supposed to.

I think all those inactive ingredients may contribute to a slight coating on this oblong shaped tablet -- making it a tad easier to swallow than a round uncoated tablet ... Don't forget the stomach has a lot of other acid and enzymes for breaking stuff down ... The water recommendation may be more for ease of swallowing and preventing choking? ... Don't know what more to tell you -- just that it works!

Keep in mind, as most caplet type pills do these days, this pill has a coating on it that dissolves in your stomach acid, not water, vinegar or oil.

Compare the ingredients of this product, and metamucil (or the equate equivalent).

This product contains Calcium Polycarbophil 625 Mg Equivalent to 500 Mg Polycarbophil Bulk-Forming Laxative

Where as, last I checked, the equate "bulk forming" fiber/powder is some husk/fiber.

This product is calcium and some other ingredients in pill form.

Not for me, but each person is different ... My doctor said "it's easy on the system" and he takes it daily -- so it's worth a try!

Every individual is different and may react differently to medications. There are no warnings on the product label stating that this product can cause gas or bloating. We suggest speaking with your doctor to find other products that may add fiber to your diet that may be right for you.
