I've tried taking both Benefiber and Metamucil. I feel like at times they work, they bulk up and smooth out my stool, but it seems to go back and forth between that ok time and hard little pebbles, which usually leads to a very bad time.


So my question - if you take either of these and they work, how much and exactly when do you take it? Before meals? with meals? before bed? first thing in the morning?


If I could just get the dosing right, it might actually help.
