    Has anyone tried fibercon? I have been having a backed up intestine and my
    GP had me using malk of magnesia (YUCI). I bought fibercon and thought I would try it for daily use. With the IC and other Stomach probllems I don't think my body gets enough fiber.

      I have been constipated my entire life. I cannot eat fresh fruits and vegetables because I am allergic to them. Fiber is not much help either and causes me to have gas. I was taking laxatives everyday. I tried taking Milk of Magnesia and it worked great at first but started making me feel sick to my stomach. Then I found the Phillips' Caplets. These are different from Milk of Magnesia ( the liquid). Not as harsh and only contain magnesium. I started out taking 2 day to get started and now I only take one a day. Sometimes I only take one every other day it just depends.

        FiberCon is safe to use everyday...it is labelled as a laxative, but it is not. FDA mandates that certain products be labelled as such. Constipation also longer to alleviate than IBS-diahrrea. Just be sure to drink enough water, if you keep using the FiberCon (not Fiber Sure, btw) you prolly will become more regular with regular use.

          I used to use the store brand of Citrucel tablets, I didn't have any excess gas with those. I also used to use Benefiber powder on food & in beverages I could never taste it & I'm a very finicky person
