Do fiber supplements such as Metamucil and Benefiber make you feel really full and uncomfortable?? I have no affiliation with either of the brand names.Thanks! ~Charlotte

They can, the trick is to start slowly with them, smaller amounts and build it up over time. For some it can take as long as eight weeks to adjust.There is soluble and nonsoluble fibers as well.They can increase bloating as the body gets use to it and bacteria feed off the fiber which can increase gas symptoms in some people.However long term they may help for a variety of reasons.
