Re: Stool softeners and fiber
It's so funny that you mentioned this because I was just recently going through the same thing. I started taking citrucel and, of course, at first it caused a bit of gas and bloating. I notied that the 1 tablespoon of Citrucel was not enough so I started taking 1-2 100mg pills of colace a day. Wow, the combo of citrucel AND the colace killed my stomach. Not only was I extremely bloated and gassy, but I was really crampy as well. I stopped the stool softners and began upping my citrucel by 1 teaspoon. I am now on 1 tablespoon of citrucel in the afternoon and 2 tsp at night. This is proving to be much more tolerable. Still a little gassy and bloated though, but not like when I combined the citrucel with the colace. Yikes!!
