I have IBS that alternates between diarrhea and constipation. I get awful bouts of D, then take Immodium which plugs me up for the next several days. My doctor recommended taking a daily dose of Metamucil to help smooth things out. I took my first dose last night and have already had 3 bouts of D. I'll try it for a week, but have a feeling it's only going to make things worse. Has anyone else tried this?PS: I'm 9 weeks pregnant so I'm not really interested in any medications to control my IBS until after I deliver. For now, Immodium is safe so I'm sticking with that!Thanks for your help!!
