I use 1 tblesp 2xday. Once in the a.m. and once in the p.m. It's good stuff, caused no bloating or gas in me. Stir it in water and wait a few minutes for it to disolve. No taste at all, just like water.
I tried Benefiber 1x tablespoon per day for about 5 days. It definitely helped with the BMs but I was in a lot of pain and had a lot of gas. I know I probably didn't give it long enough to settle down but I really couldn't handle feeling so bad!! I gave it a rest and now I'm trying again, 1 x teaspoon per day. I figure that amount couldn't upset me too much. I'll try and up the dose later if I'm feeling OK, as I reckon 1 teaspoon probably won't help the BM much either.
I thought benefiber's for D... at least soluable kind's supposed to... is there a non-soluable kind of benefiber?I've been trying it... it kinda worked -- i still have 3-4 BMs usually but sometimes on a good day i can have 2 and be done with it (not very many of those days, though)... What it doesn't do for me is the pain and bloating, which i really hate... It's just like the yogurt that i tried... kinda worked, but... So, I'm kinda debating if I want to see my dr. again about it -- but right now i'm so busy i don't have time...Amy, I'm so sorry fiber gives you this much trouble...
