not too my knowledge, my sister was taking them for gas, so i thought i would try it, to my surprise it seemed to help with my other symptoms, im not sure i would take them for constipation, because thats one of the side effects of the charcoal. the bottle says its a vegetable fiber.i don't seem to have the fever before or after, just during, when im having a bad day.good luckView Thread
have been diagnosed with ibs, it seems to effect me in the mornings everyday,with diarrhea. in the mornings i get up, have to go, then 5 minutes later, go again, and so on, until my bowel is empty.and sometimes i have to keep going with nothing there, kinda like dry heaves from that end. and when that happens i break out in a sweat,have the stomach cramps,then i start feeling nausious, and sometimes, vomiting.i also have the gas and bloating. my doctor has put me on bentyl(dicyclomine)which helps some, don't think i could live without it at this point. but i also discovered that charcoal capsules help me. i take 2 capsules every night before i go to sleep,(but they must be taken at least 3 hours after your other meds.) i'm not sure what they do, but they seem to take away MOST of my spasms. its not a cure all, but i hope it can help.View Thread
