Is the new Benefiber better or worse?

I am taking Proton Pump Inhibitors (PROTONIX),for my acid reflux and it is making me even more chronically constipated that I already was. I am so bloated, it is driving me wacko. Does anyone know if Benefiber A) bloats you out and gives you gas like Metamucil does?, and B) is the new formula of it better or worse?
I notice its not gummy like the last formula. I havent taken it yet...just messed around to see the consistency of it.

I have only had the Benefiber tablets, but it seems to lessen the bloat, not make it worse. I also take Beano with meals.

I wish I could take beano. I am really allergic to an ingredient in it that is a mold called aspergillus mold. I get a horrible headache when I take Beano, unfortunately.
