a while ago, I had a major problem with diarrhea. I tried changing my diet, using imodium but nothing worked. I was unable to go outof the house for any amount of time for fear of an accident. It scared me so much that I went to my family doctor who sent me to a specialist. After testing me and finding nothing wrong, he suggested taking Benefiber. The best thing I could have done. It gave me my life back. After my system got acclamated to the dosage, I was able to cut back and now take a smaller dosage. I usually take the caplets with my morning and before bedtime medications, but have tried the chewables some times also. The flavors are pallatable. I try to eat properly but know that the fiber tablets even things out for me. I do wish they were a little cheeper though.
