What works best for you? I take Metamucil and it works great for me. I am tempted to try benefiber but I'm scared it won't work! I know they are all made of different typeds of fiber (metamucil is psyllium)and I am wondering if some fibers work better than others?

I've tried all different sorts of fiber. They all start off working well but over a few weeks they all have stopped working. I can't tell whether one works better then the other at first but ultimately they all stop working after a couple of weeks.

I take Citrucel (it's soluble fiber, I think something man-made), and it definitely helps. I take the tablets so there's no icky powder mixture . . .I recommend it!2 tablets = 1 gram of soluble fiber.

I'm tryng acacia fiber at the moment and it seems pretty good but too early to really tell. I used to like Citrucel as well, but psyllium fiber like Metamucil never seemed to agree with me.
