Docusate Sodium Stool Softener Softgels - OTC40110
Docusate Sodium (Colace): Stimulant-free formula. (Compare to Colace.) Docusate is given to make stools softer and easier to pass. It is used to treat constipation due to hard stools, in painful anorectal conditions such as hemorrhoids, and for people who should avoid straining during bowel movements. Of note is that the effect of docusate may not necessarily be all due to its surfactant properties. Perfusion studies suggest that docusates inhibit fluid absorption or stimulate secretion in the portion of the small intestine known as the jejunum. Patients should take plenty of water to help the movement of feces, therefore speeding up the initial bowel movement. 1000 Softgels. 100 mg.

value-priced stool softener

I take a lot of meds that are constipating so this works well for me. I take 4 per day (more than most people) and it keeps me going normally.

Pros:Price was best found because of free shipping

Cons:Expires 9/13. Fine for me and anyone taking twice a day but may want later expiration date if taking only one a day. Wrong item shipped at first but easily remedied with one phone call and I had the correct product the next day.

Overall: Yes, I would recommend this product.
