I've used LOTS of psyllium. If you are looking for cheap, get the generic stuff. Yup, it's gross, but it's cheap. My doc switched me to Miralax so I wouldn't have to do the fiber thing. I found the Miralax made it difficult to manage the BM. Had to use minipads. So I added a little psyllium to the Miralax and that helped. For a long time I tried to switch, with poor results. I simply started decreasing the Mira and increasing the fiber. I think I can't use psyllium right now. Too much bloating. I'm using Benefiber instead. Works pretty well. Down to 1/2 dose of Mira. I get a generic Mira from my drug provider. MUCH cheaper. See if somebody will order it for you. Big bottles. Same stuff.
