      I started Thursday... nothing happened all day. Had a BM on Friday morning (fairly dissapointing) then nothing else all day. Finally had another this morning (also dissapointing) I have however been gassy. And when I have a BM it smells weird. Not like poop but, I don't know it is hard to explain. Guess that means it's working? Also every morning I am waking up from cramping in my stomach. Like menstral cramping. I am hoping I have more luck when I up the dosage.

          I just came across this thread and I so want to do this with you guys! I normally only go once a week and I've tried everything. Most stuff works for a day or two and then it stops. So, I'm going to look to see if I can find this in a store today. If not I will definitely order. Did everyone just purchase online (I didn't read the entire thread...just the first 7 pages)?

            I think you can only purchase it online. I could be mistaken though. As far as I know everyone purchased online.

            as far as i know it can only be purchased online, at least this specific brand we're using. i know there are other kinds in the health stores and whatever, but i have not seen colonix anywhere but the internet. you can also try looking on ebay for it, i got mine from an ebay seller and paid $15 less than the price on the website.

              danielle, the instruction booklet says if you notice a worse smell than usual the cleansing is working. you may not necessarily see big nasty results but the smell is an indicator its working.

              for anyone who has trouble getting either the pills or the fiber down, here's what ive been doing that has worked so far.

              i bought simply apple pressed unfiltered apple juice (looks kinda cloudy). i take a big sip of the juice and then put the pills in my mouth (the garlic smell they have makes me a little gaggy first thing in the morning). then i drink a glass of water. then 15 mins later i mix the 1/2 scoop fiber with the apple juice. the fact that the apple juice is cloudy hides the fiber in there, and i cant taste it either. supposedly it has a banana taste but i cannot taste it at all. the only thing that slightly still bothers me with it in the apple juice is the licorice smell. the apple juice hides it pretty well but not completely. i find if i hold my breath while drinking it, i'm not bothered, but if i breathe through my nose while trying to take a sip, im grossed out. all in all, its not that bad really.

              angela i would especially recommend what im doing for you because i know you quit taking it because you couldnt handle the taste of the fiber. i swear this is working this way, i am not having problems getting it down. i even worked myself all up thinking about it expecting it to be nasty but its not bad when i mix it in the apple juice.
