Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

How many bowel movements do you have in a day? Since when do you have this type of stools? How old are you? Why did you start fiber pills?

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

It is likely that you are suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) which can cause such a change in the consistency of stool. You should eat plenty of vegetables and fruits and make a diary of your daily diet and the consistency of stools and avoid foods that may be responsible for the soft stools. The cause is likely to be a component of your diet that is causing the soft stools. Instead of fiber pill, you should take a lot of vegetables and this will more natural and will produce good results.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
