In brief: QUALITY MATTERS

When using a quality fiber, you should have a bowel movement within approximately 24 hours of its ingestion.
Try using a pure psyllium husk without any additives. Quality acidophilus must either have high potency (e.g., 250 billion/tsp) or be formulated to survive stomach acid. Such products are available from professionals (not over-the-counter) where they are prescribed for medical reasons.
