And I can't find no leaflets in the box as I wanted to know if its sugar fee

Can anyone tell me if it stopped these symptoms or do I just have to live with them

    Hi fybogel is just a fibre supplement that made me a lot worse, it does not settle tummy pain or stop you feeling sick. When you take it make sure you drink plenty or it will block you right up.

    Bethia... looks like you should take after meals but not close to bedtime. Always take with water. It does have aspertaine for sweetener. You can Google it and get all type of information on its uses and how to use.

    The sick feeling comes in waves and will pass with time. DD is a nasty disease but with consistence you can manage it.

      Hi Bethia

      My friend swears by ginger which I know you can get as a tea.  I can't vouch for it, as I loathe the stuff.  But peppermint tea is a really good idea.

      I tried ginger hated it and it burnt my throat but I found the peppermint tea cool and refreshing they say one cup a day is all you need, some do two but as I'm testing it out I thought one cup best...not a mug, just in case.

      That is so good to know. Thank you. I no longer have DD issues but it cost me 10.5"of my bowel, for emergency surgeries and a long recovery time. I actually drink dill pickle juice for nausea now. The peppermint tea sounds wonderful.

      Be careful with the chocolate and don't have to much. It bothers some. The pain will get better after a while on the antibiotics. They have to have time to heal up the inflammation. Take care and continue to check back here for more very helpful information.

      Well 6 hrs have passed and no signs of nausea, that suits me fine, I also feel a lot better in myself the feeling of generally unwell has retreated, my tummy don't feel bloated but a little full,

      I can live with that,

      I found the peppermint tea kicked in quickly am waiting for the fybogel to kick in but it do say fybogel side effects is bloating, something the tea counter attacks as for the farting can't do much about that but I sure do feel better after one,

      I would recommend peppermint tea to everyone after all you have nothing to lose but an awful lot to gain and if it works on me I'm sure it will work on anyone

      Good night friends x

      Bethia try Metamucil in its sugar free powder form. I take it twice per day in 2 teaspoons in 12 ounces of water and I have been pain free six years. For me the only downside is I have several bowel movements per day and typically within the first hour when I wake up in morning. Once I feel my colon is cleaned out I am ready to take on the day without any issues. The product does stop mild diarrhea and it will not make you gasey. Good luck and let me know what you think. You can buy it on the internet or a generic just like it.

      I have no bloating issues when taking it you should take twice per day and monitor how you feel while on it.

      Good luck.

      Bethia the psyllium husk aka Metamucil was offered to me by a board certified surgeon six years ago and he sent me on my way without ripping out part of my colon unlike some others on this site. If you have constipation and mild diarrhea this product should do you good. It can help you and you should try it twice per day instead of just once to speed up the processing in your system.

      Lastly many followers on this site suffer from IBS and psyllium also helps to relieve the symptoms of that disease.

      Best of luck to you.
