Are you drinking enough water with them? If not, maybe that could be why. Or it could just be a coincidence or your body just needs some time to adjust. Before I had UC, I found that Metamucil sometimes seemed to constipate me even more than I already was...not sure why. I take the wafers almost every day now and they seem to help me. I can't remember what happened when I first started taking them, but I did start slowly. I ate only one wafer for about
a week and then bumped it up to two.
