I started eating Bran Buds on my doctors recommendation. At first I was happy with the results. From watching an episode of Dr Oz where he explained that normal stool should be toothpaste consistency I was relieved to finally being regular. So I continued taking about 1/2 cup per day.

I realize now that the psyillium in the buds was irritating my bowels because my stool became too loose. Now I am at the point that even though I stopped eating the Bran Buds my bowels are irritable non-stop. I have loose stool all the time and its been at least three weeks now that I can't calm down my IB.

In the past I have had a flex sigmoidoscopy with no problems found and have done the occult blood test with no negative results.

I don't know if milk of magnesium would help?
