: : : 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.

: : Janet,

: : 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.

: Hi Ann,
: I am curious---in what way was 2 caps in the morning and 2 in the pm too much. As you know you can be graphic on this board.
: By the way your message in response to Anna was very GOOD---I wonder why she didn't respond to mine???
: God Bless---Harry

: I have IBS-C and take 2 fibercons a day in the p.m. Should I be taking them in the a.m. instead of at night?
