Fiber Supplement?

I have a very sensitive stomach i have ibs,reflux and gastritis

my ibs sometimes alternate from loose to constipation so i really need something that puts me in the middle and makes me regular


so im looking for a fiber supplement i can take that wont cause me any harm

ive tried psyllium my problem with that mostly is that it makes me feel too full and stays that way for awhile so its then hard for me to eat which is not good

i was on benefiber for awhile but my problem with that is now its hard to come by i found an alternative brand for the powder but the thing is i really would like a non powdered product cause i cant bring the powder with me outside i dont know how to bring it to a friends house,to a restaurant etc..

so thats where im at so i need something that will regulate me without making matters worse either way and i would prefer non powdered version

any help would be greatly appreciated

Metamucil puts out a capsule as well their is Fiber Con. I use a small Tupperware container made to put salad dressing or other types of condiments in it making it easier to take with you. Hope this is helpful.
