: I just found something that has worked well for me and I wanted to pass it on. I have IBS-C, and I have been trying for months to take Harry's advice on fiber. The problem I was having was that metamucil was causing me to be extremely bloated and gassy. I would start then stop and so on and so on. I decided to try taking metamucil in the morning and citrucel in the evening. This has worked very well for me. I read that we should alter our fiber therapies anyway. I guess we could become immune to one therapy. Hope this helps someone. Take Care, Janet L.
Thanks for sharing the info. Here's another idea that worked for me....I bought the psyillium husk(sp?) capsules and did it slowly. For one week, I just took one in the morning with breakfast, then, the next week I took one in a.m. and one with supper, and so on. I went up to 2 in a.m. & 2 in p.m., but that seemed too much for me, so I only do 1 in a.m. and 2 in p.m. I have D type. Ann S.
