hi- i know that when you take fiber supplements you are supposed to drink "a lot" of water... how much is "a lot??" i always drink the recommended amount 8 oz. plus another glass when i take the supplement, plus at least 8 glasses and probably more throughout the day... is this enough?? the warnings seem so drastic... thanks enja

Taking 8 ounces of water after fiber supplements plus an aditional 8 is recommended. I think you are doing well with 8 ounces of water per day. You're doing what is recommended; are you having problems? If not continue the course!

Hi Enja:I think you're doing fine with the amount of water you drink. I wouldn't worry about it.I know too much isn't good, but I don't remember the exact amount. One of my daughter's friends used to drink several gallons a day and the doctor told her to stop that much, that she was losing too many electrolytes.JeanG
