ok so right now i am taking one metamusil in the morning and 3 caltrate d 's within the whole days time. my BM's are still soft but nothing compared to what they were. Do you think i should up the fiber or take it away completely and just take the calcuim. i have only been consistent for 3 days now with the fiber and calcuim.

Hi,
No, I don't think you should give up either. I'd keep taking both for at least a couple weeks and see what happens. Furthermore, I think if you quit the fiber your stools will not be as bulky. Keep a steady routine for a little while and then adjust the doses as you go (if need be). If you get constipated you might want to consider cutting down on the calcium. Either way, whether you have D or C, fiber is good for you and probably shouldn't be cut out. Just my personal opinion... hopefully someone else will be along to add to this.

It is my opinion that taking as little as possible is the best. But if you have been using the fiber before the calcium and it did not cause you bloating and cramping you may want to stiick with it a bit longer as was said to let things normalize. I for onw could not take the fiber. It is trial and error to get it right so keep at it and let us know how you are doing.
