    I like these & have a couple a day & also drink about a gallon of plain water a day. I think that they have gotten an IBS attack going that I cannot stop w/my Donnatol. I can't think of anything else. It's those bottled waters that has flavor, no calories or carbonation. Anyone else have a problem w/these?

    Check out the sweetener- I can not tolerate any artificial sweeteners- NutraSweet or whatever- I get terrrible IBS symptoms. Just a thought. Hope you figure it out.

    PainSue;

    I have never had a problem with these, but I do react badly to daily vitamins, supplements, etc.

    it could be the drinks, if they have artificial sweetners in them. Like lollieboo, I can't drink anything with artificial sweetners in them, as its sets off my IBS.

    The type that I bought were carbonated--just what I wanted. I thought they may remind me of pop.

    However, I noticed--after I got home!--that they were sweetened by aspertame. Ugh!!

    I can not drink aspertame because it triggers migraines in me.

    The only artificial that does not trigger migraines is Splenda.

    There is a company that makes a GREAT carbonated beverage that is 100% juice- even my DH and son love it! It is called "Switch". No added sweeteners, but it would be more if you wanted the carbonation w/out the "pop", not if you wanted the no-cal water thing...

    Although Glaceau makes great fruit-flavored or vitamin-infused waters.

    OH- and if you like cola, but want to break off of the Coke/Pepsi train- try China Cola-- it is awesome! A combination of chinese herbs that is invigorating, and tastes like a cola.

    Have Fun!

    I do avoid aspartane as I know it evokes an IBS breakout. These didn't have any. I've been off for a few days & almost not IBS symtoms. It would be nice if I never had to worry about making it to a bathroom on time.

    Check the label again to see if they have any malatose or malodextrin included. These upset me horribly. LaVada

    There are some that aren't sweetened but have fruit essences such as Calistoga Mineral Water. Albertson's has flavored seltzer waters with Lemon or Lime essence. I find that these don't bother me and they encourage me to drink more water since I like the taste.

    I'll have to check those other ingredients that were mentioned. I don't tolerate carbonated drinks very well so I avoid them. I do shop at Albertson's though.
