My mom have always constipation maybe because she always in the wheelchair all the time. Is it okay for her to take a Metamucil capsule everyday? What does it really do to her since she always in the wheelchair? Is there any good vitamins for her too?

Metamucil is a combination laxative and fiber supplement available over the counter. Patients who are deficient in fiber could benefit from metamucil but excess fiber can inhibit absorption of medications and nutrients.

Other alternatives for constipation include docusate sodium (available in a variety of brand names) and senna glycosides. These are stool softeners and laxatives that do not contain fiber.

With regards to vitamins, you mother would need to be evaluated by her physician or a nutritional specialist to determine what supplementation she requires.
