    Hi Susan I take Regucol but after this latest attack I might ask my GP if he could prescribe Fybergel.  My attack started at 5pm on Saturday and I have not been to the loo since that morning so now I have gone the other way!

      What's regucol? A fibre supplement....I'm from Australia & the only thing I take is coloxyl. If I don't have that daily I'm in trouble with another attack. I have IBS as well. As soon as I start to slowly introduce fibre into my diet, I end up very sick again.

      That's what happened to me last week But I now feel like I need to go all the time. I usually take a antispasmodic tablet but thought I would try the fybergel the dr gave me Hope you feel better soon

    Hello, I have been prescribed Fybogel for the reverse problem to you, but I believe it may help to regularise both conditions.

    I've also just started taking the probiotic fibre supplement Lepicol which maybe more effective as it also contains the micro thingys, but isn't on prescription.

    I think these fibre supplements take a little time to work but hopefully you will have a good outcome.
