Neither one worked for me. I use a glass of lemon juice in the morning along with a prune. If needed I follow up with mom (milk of magnesia). This combo works well for me after trying everything else under the sun. Hope you find a combo that works for you!

I think the liquid is better...you have to hydrate to chase the fiber anyway. In pill form , there are so many crevices in the bowel where it just may gather...liguid is already dissolved. Thats my take.

I used to use Metamucil.

Good luck, my cure was getting off gluten I didn't heve IBS (in the end...), like clockwork now....natural fiber with vegatables and fruits is natures way. But if that is not what you have and all is processed and fiber stripped, it is always a good thing to help the body along.
