Citrucel

I use a Fiber Tab form. The tablet is large and sometimes difficult to swallow, but usually is less messy and awkward than using Citrucel suspension in water or OJ.

Has anyone ever not responded to any ibs meds and gi prescribed ibd or chrones meds?

Any medical professionals out there know jd that would be an appropriate treatment plan if nothing else is working or that I am able to take? My GI is talking about putting me back on steroids to manage this because I have those days I feel like I'm at the starting line and it's incredibly frustrating.
