    After seeing a nutricionist she put me on an extremely low calorie diet and also suggested I take Benefiber since I normally have a bowel movement once a week.

    Oh my Gosh, do not use this product! Both my husband a nd i had the most horrible 3 days after taking only two of these with the correct amount of water. It was as if there was a soccer ball stuck in our intestine and no form of nature was going to dislodge it, short of an explosion. Never again.

    Comment:
    I was taking FiberCon about an hour before I went to bed every night and noticed that about 15 minutes after I laid down my thighs would ache horribly for several hours which caused me to lose valuable sleep and I was just exhausted during the days. So I changed the time of day to morning around 8:30 AM and that eliminated the cramping in my thighs.
