It happens rarely, but some people react this way. It is preferable in this case to decrease the dosage by half and split the intake to once in the morning and once in the evening until your body gets used to it.
On the contrary, IntesFib helps sluggish intestines to regain their regularity and does not create habituation. Psyllium fibers are extremely important as they clean while sweeping the inside of the intestine and helps facilitate the evacuation of the harmful waste out of the body.
