DOCTOR RECOMMENDED
Hi to anyone who has had surgery "down below". Or for anyone who suffers with constipation, or always 'going'. This product was recommended to me by my surgeon at UCLA - Head of his department. It cleans your colon, and keeps you regular. However, you MUST drink 8 glasses of water a day - which you should be doing anyway.

Fiber Therapy

This product has the same ingredients as Fiber Con. The cost is considerably less and it is exactly the same. What's more it provides fiber therapywithout the gas.

Great service

I was sent exactly what I had ordered in a very prompt time......I believe the first part came the very next day and the remainder of the order was about a week later. I had no idea it would be this easy when I decided to order online. Definately would do this again.

inexpensive fiber supplement

A bit misleading in that bottle states it is a laxative. Maybe it is but the pharmacist tells me it is just fiber and not a problem for dependency. But what do I know? It works great. No wonder people don't like to fill out these forms with the hoops you have to jump through.

Performs as stated

Product performs as stated. Great bowl movement usually once per day

1. I think all those inactive ingredients may contribute to a slight coating on this oblong shaped tablet -- making it a tad easier to swallow than a round uncoated tablet ... Don't forget the stomach has a lot of other acid and enzymes for breaking stuff down ... The water recommendation may be more for ease of swallowing and preventing choking? ... Don't know what more to tell you -- just that it works!

2. Compare the ingredients of this product, and metamucil (or the equate equivalent). This product contains Calcium Polycarbophil 625 Mg Equivalent to 500 Mg Polycarbophil Bulk-Forming Laxative Where as, last I checked, the equate "bulk forming" fiber/powder is some husk/fiber. This product is calcium and some other ingredients in pill form.

3. Keep in mind, as most caplet type pills do these days, this pill has a coating on it that dissolves in your stomach acid, not water, vinegar or oil.

1. The Equate Fiber Therapy Bulk-Forming Laxative contains less than 2 grams of sugar per tablet.
by RQuinones
2. It does not appear that there is sugar in it. However 1 inactive ingredients listed is "carmel", which may be used for color, and may not be sucrose related.
