It’s a game changer. You are right about doctors rarely mentioning psyllium. I have a post that describes more how I take it. I take about two tablespoons of KONSYL with one tablespoon of Banatrol Plus in about four ozs of ice water. It’s crucial not to drink anything for about an hour before and an hour after taking it. Otherwise, you defeat the “thickening” of the stools. I take it once a day. It’s almost like being normal.
