Can anyone recommend an otc fiber pill or drink?  I have been back and forth between C and D and thought I'd give that a shot, something gentle?

Metamucil is the only thing that has worked well for me. Just have to ensure you drink plenty of water during the day.

I like the Fibercon pills. I have also used the Benefiber pills.

Check to see that the one you use does NOT contain artificial sugars - these can cause extra gas and bloating.
