Too much fiber...I feel not very smart right now. :(
« on: April 14, 2014, 08:27:08 AM »
First of all I want to say I realize I brought this on myself and I feel stupid. Yesterday I bought some fiber tablets, on the box it says to eat 1 then work your way up to 4 when you get used to them. I ate two, later that night I drank a little bit of prune juice. I am so miserable right now, I feel like I'm going to vomit and I have really bad diarrhea. I googled about it and now I'm scared that this is going to turn into something serious or I am damaging my body in some way. Anyone ever taken too much fiber?

Taking too much fiber one time is really nothing to worry about. I did the same thing when i was told a low fiber diet+stress was causing IBS.

I did the SAME thing last year!!  I was going hard all the time and I just wanted to soften up, so I ate about 10 or 12 prunes!  (they say to eat 3 or 4, but since nothing works for me for ANTYHING, including Advil for headaches, I thought I'll just go all out)  Later on I got such bad pains, diarrhea and all!  It didn't last last and no ill effects. You'll be fine.
