ok so this is my third day using Benefiber. it helped me go to the bathroom once. but ive been using it 3 times a day 2 tsp in my drinks. and now it wont seem to work. i put it on everything and i still only go number 2 like i did with low fiber in my diet. when i had low fiber i only went number 2 most 3 times a week, and the stool was very dry and big. i ate Benefiber with milk one night..then the next morning after eating cereal with Benefiber in it.. i went number 2. it was easy to pass cause of the moisture from fiber. but it seemed to only work once. i put a lot everytime i eat, i dont know why its not working now. havent went number 2 since the first time i used it though. hopefully the stool will be easy to pass since im using Benefiber. and also i put it on a mcdonalds burger.. and it turned into plastic! i dont know what happend! its not suppose to do that. and then i put it in an iced mocha frappe from mcdonalds and it got a little lumpy.

Found that out, too...that walmart doesn't have it. Neither does Walgreens anymore! Tried to find out why but didn't find anything on the web....the orange version tastes just like TANG!

I have been taking Benefiber for a couple of years now. I drink it cold in the summer and hot in the winter. (I mix one packet with 16 ozs water, and drink about 16 ozs each day).
Recently I have experienced a burning sensation in the lower part of my stomach. Usually wakes me up in the middle of the night. Could this possibly be a side effect from the Benefiber? Has anyone else out there experienced anything like this?

Gots bad gout from Benefiber... any suggestions?

Sat, 22 Oct 2011

After taking one half tsp. of Benefiber in 80z of water. I began having anaphylaxix symptoms, my throat started to swell and chest tightened. I stated Bendadry 2 tablets every 4 hours. The next morning after breakfast the symptoms stared to reoccur. I started the Bendadry again to counteract the reaction. It is now 36 hours and still experiencing the side effects.
I read that the ingredient in this is wheat starch processed with acid. I strongly believe because of my severe reaction and others', this product needs to taken off the market.
Please warn others as I will do.

Fri, 11 Dec 2009

I had hives and rash with itching and had to seek medical help to counteract with medication. Whats in the Benefiber that cause that? >:o
