My son has same symtoms &that was disagnosis.His nerves in intestines do not work at all He has to take meds for life.
For the short answer: No.
Psyllium is a plant used as a dietary fiber that does NOt get absorbed by the small intestines. It just absorbes water while helping you poop.
The pill he is taking is a gell produced by the seed coat, or husk, and is often reffered to as mucilage.
the worst side effect i found is that a gastrointestinal tract obstruction may occur, especially for those with prior bowel surgeries or anatomic abnormalities, or if taken with inadequate amounts of water.
