Elizabeth Mina on Jul, 11, 2011:
After my first dose of Citrucel fiber 3 days ago, I started noticing increasing symptoms of urinary retention (difficulty getting a stream of urine started with very little and dark urine). Because of former back surgery and a known propensity to experience urinary retention with nerve drugs like neurontin and SSRIs like Paxil, I always have to be alert to any ingredient that impairs urination. However, I didn't have any urinary retention in the 5 years I took Metamucil fiber for constipation. (I had to stop taking Metamucil after I started responding with chronic asthma to its main ingredient, the psyllium, which is ground husk from the plantain plant; my allergy doctor tested me to this common weed allergen and I had a positive reaction.) I am wondering why Citrucel gives me urinary retention whereas the Metamucil never did, since they are both similar forms of fiber geared to work the say way. Any answers?
