    I don't know this to be factual, but my experience says the same. And, when they are in pain, their appetite drops and thus fecal output diminishes as well. I'm surprised the Reglan hasn't had more...

    Sorry to disagree, but my information is that yellow peppers are highest in Vit. C and red are the highest in sugar. Maybe check for both of us?
