Hi franc and welcome to Healing Well,
I for one believe that everyone that has IBS (C or D) should at least try a fiber regimen. I have to say that it has made my life so much bearable and it seems like I have more control of my bowels now. There are people here that also take calcium carbonate for loose stools with good results. I hope you try a few to see what works, unfortunately everyone is different so it sometimes ends up in a whole lot of trial and error.
