In brief: Not the fiber

Probably not the fiber.
Could be the constipation or something else going on. You should let your doctor know about your symptoms.

In brief: Listen to body

There are many ways to deal with constipation.
Your body doesn't like the fiber laxative. Look at life style, eat more fresh raw fruits and vegetables, prunes, baby spinach leaves, coconut oil or coconut milk and avoid processed food, rice and bananas. Get 7-8 hours of sleep, move through the day and learn to manage stress. See kelly mcgonigal's the will power instinct to facilitate change.
