    Hi everyone, I have noticed that whenever I take psyllium supplements (right now I'm using Konsyl brand) my bowel movements are more frequent and "somewhat" loose. By "loose" I mean it floats and is in many large soft chunks that break apart easily. It's not diarrhea grade and there are no...
  2. Diet
    Hi All, I am doing strict low Fodmaps. Just started a few days ago. But I have a predicament: I have to take psyllium fiber (Konsyl) 2 or 3 times a day, via shaker cup with fruit juice to mix it in. What juices can I use which would be Fodmaps safe? Or, what other liquids could I consider...
  3. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I am 22 years old male from India. I am an engineer and do bodybuilding as well. This year I got sore throat, so doc prescribed me Augmentin (Amoxicillin) for 5 days. I got well after 5 days.

    Hi everyone. I'm gonna have my first colonoscopy next Wednesday. According to the instructions I got from the hospital, I should avoid foods containing seeds one week before the colonoscopy. I just realized this morning, that I hadn't thought about the fact that my psyllium husk supplement...
  5. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    My doc has me on fiber+miralax twice a day. I'm not sure which one makes me gag since I just put them in the same cup, but I'm getting darn tired of throwing up in my mouth nearly every time I take the stuff. Flavoring it with crystal light didn't help much. Is there anything else I can do...

  7. Your Story
    I'm new to this forum and a healthy person for the most part, which makes it even more horrible as someone who hardly ever goes to a doctor (and doesn't have health insurance). I don't even get a seasonal cold or allergies...but for some reason, since May I have not been able to go to the...
  8. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I stupidly thought I would try something different for my chronic constipation, even though fiber hasn't worked for me in the past. I read so much great stuff about psyllium for IBS, I was optimistic. This morning I took 1 teaspoon in 8 oz of water. Around noon I sprinkled some (barely a...
  9. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hey guys, I'm back with more questions. I had finally found a fiber that worked for me - methylcellulose (Citrucel brand). I was doing better, but I decided to look up the ingredients one day, and found that maltodextrin (no idea why it's in Citrucel) is derived from corn or wheat. These are...
  10. General Discussion
    I've been recommended psyllium husk powder as a means to stay regular with my C/D IBS. Looking for some advice though about a few things, based on people's experiences: - Morning or evening? (I'm not sure I like the idea of having it in the morning and feeling full and bloated the rest of the...
