I have been reading that fiber suppliments can help with diarrhea. Is this true. That it normalizes the bowels. The fiber absorbs many times it's weight in water. It also gets rid of constipation. Does anyone have any experience with this. I have been trying to get rid of diarrhea for the last week. I believe it's a side effect from some medication I am taking. So I am drinking some fiber right now orange flavored in water. I will either feel better tomorrow or be way worse. I have used Immodium but I don't want to use that forever. I thought the fiber would be a longer term solution short of not taking the medication anymore. So hopefully this works and I don't have to quit the medication. Last night I got some yogurt and cottage cheese which helped some and then tonight I went out and had lobster and lots of butter which I know is bad and I am worse again.
Well ever since I drank it my diarrhea stopped. I'll keep you posted if it's still working tomorrow and if it gets rid of my problem. By the way the Lobster was a special treat, someone gave us a gift certificate to Red Lobster for Christmas. I love it but it doesn't love me...lol.
