I guess it's been 2 years when I was first dignoised i took Rowasa and Asacol and then took Perfect Fiber, my doctor was so amazed that within 6 weeks my UC was gone! Now with saying that I got off meds immediatley that day and two months later everything was back.
I take straight physllium by Now (apple flavor) it does not say laxative on the bottle. I know for sure it helps with bulking! It takes about 3 days for me to notice a difference. My GI recommended 3 tablespoons a day. It's hard to get that much in, but I do it. I do Tablespoon, AM, Afternoon and Evening. I don't feel as full and I don't eat sweets, it curb my appetite for sweets! I like that.
