Drug Information Methylcellulose

Methylcellulose is a laxative used to regulate bowel function and can help control constipation and diarrhea. Constipation is a common problem that means going to the bathroom less than usual and defecating hard or painful stools. This problem occurs for various reasons. Eating less fiber and drinking less fluids can lead to constipation. Some conditions such as pregnancy, decreased mobility, exercise and some medications can lead to constipation. Increasing fiber in the diet and drinking fluids can often help prevent and treat constipation.

If you can not increase the fiber in your diet, you will be prescribed methylcellulose. When methylcellulose is taken with some water, the methylcellulose tablet absorbs water and swells as a soft gel in your gut, increasing the total number of bowel movements and treating constipation.

Methylcellulose tablets can also be helpful in controlling diarrhea. When swallowed with some water, it absorbs water from the intestines. This drug prevents fluid loss in diarrhea and controls the amount of stool. Methylcellulose is prescribed to regulate the function of the gastrointestinal tract in people with certain intestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, diverticular disease and ulcerative colitis, and after some types of intestinal surgery.
