You may expect bloating (gas) and this bloating may cause you pain. It's like when you would eat a lot of beens. You'll maybe have bulk stools or diarrhea. It's unlikely something other would happen. Fibercon is not some dangerous drug, it's substance which attracts water and thus help to form bulk stools.

Be sure to drink enough water, since you might get constipated from all these fibers. So just drink, and allow the fibers to come out.
