Hi ! I'm not an expert -- but i do know that 2 fibercon caps equals 1 gram of soluble fiber and you can increase it (slowy) to 12 grams which would be 24 caps a day ! I would definitely start upping the dosage if i were you. Also -- i have read Heather say to try to drink 16 8 oz glasses of water a day if you can. I have to work on that (and write it down) -- but that sounds like more than you are drinking and that might really help also. One more thing -- I have heard Heather say that she and some others have found the powders to be more effective (and when you get your dosage up -- they are alot simpler to take). With Benefiber you can take 2 tablespoons in a big glass of water twice a day and that is the max dose (12grams)... much simpler than all those pills -- (or take it 3x a day) --or the best is probably Heather's Acacia because it is organic and also a prebiotic so it will start putting good critters into your gut as well as doing its other soluble fiber goodies. With Heather's Acacia, the max dose is 15 grams which i figured out to be 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons twice a day. I hope that helps. It has really helped me alot.
