I see scattered posts about what some IBS-C folks are taking to help them poop! Like magnesium, triphala, flax oil capsules, enzymes, SFS, probiotic, acidolpholous, fennel tea, peppermint tea, peppermint capsules, digestive advantage, etc.

I was wondering if we could get everyone to post what they take (brand name, how often, dose amount, etc) in one post so that people could bookmark it. This would really help me. Please try and participate if you can!

Thanks so much!

Loc: Alabama

Acacia: 18-20grams divided into three equal doses, one before each meal

Cal/Mag: Country Life 500/250mg per tablet. One with breakfast, one with lunch

Omega Complex: Now 1200mg capsules Omega 3-6-9 One with each meal

Multi-Vitamin: Now brand True Balance: one a day with breakfast

Probiotic: Jarrodophilus EPS once a day, in the morning an hour before I have eaten anything

Plenty of water and enough IF is KEY....no matter what my supplements. Without enough of those, things still get wacky.

Hey Cyndy,

I am still trying to work out a routine that works for me...here is what I have been doing for the past couple of months:

Morning: tsp. Triphala Internal Cleanse Powder

Evening: heaping tsp. Konsyll psyllium husk powder, with Digestive Advantage.

Before every meal: peppermint capsule and 2 digestive enzymes.

I feel like the pep caps may actually be hurting me more than they are helping, so I might try to limit them and see what happens. The Triphala is a godsend for me, though. I don't know about the D.A....it's hard to tell, since I'm taking so much other stuff!

Hope that helps!

I'm still working this out, however: 2 level T of acacia in 24 oz. water (drink all day long) 1200 mg. Magnesium plus a CalMag. 2-4 1000 mg. triphalla (good stuff) 3 T ground flax seed. Just went on Donnatol. I don't care if it is constipating, tired of no sleep and spasms. I have Zelnorm pills to take if necessary. It works. Water, exercise, IF in the right amount. Hope this helps. xxoo Bette

I have been recently taking benefibre (up 1 TBSP in morning and another in the evening), going to increase a little but at the moment it is working great! No other supplements for me, just lots of liquids (water) and exercise 3 times a week for an hour or so.
