Product Overview

Geri-Care Pharmaceuticals Stool Softener Docusate Sodium - 100 mg - Compares to Colace

Stool Softener Docusate Sodium - 100 mg - Compares to Colace


Docusate is known as a 'stimulant laxative'. It acts on nerve endings in the gut wall. These nerves then make the muscles in the intestine contract with more force and more often. When the gut contracts, it moves the contents along faster, and so it reduces constipation. It may also act by softening the stool. The muscle contractions move the feces through the bowel faster, meaning that there is less time for water to be absorbed from the feces in the gut into the blood. As a result, the feces contain more water and are softer and easier to pass. As docusate increases the activity of the muscle in the gut, it often causes stomach cramps. The tablets, taken by mouth, take about 1 to 2 days to work.

Warning:

Stool softeners should not be used within two hours of other medications because they may reduce their intended effects. Stool softeners should not be given at the same time as mineral oil. Like all laxatives, stool softeners should not be used frequently or for a prolonged period of time without a doctor's advice.

Not to be used if you have:
  • Blockage of the gut (intestinal obstruction)
  • Piles/haemorrhoids
  • Tear in the lining of the back passage (anal fissure)

Less Expesive Than the Name Brand

Pros:
Produces Results. Acts Quickly.
Cons:
Hard to separate strip. 6 in strip need cut apart.
Best Uses:
As needed.
Describe Yourself:
Disabled since 1984.

Works just like the name brand. Only problem is they are in plastic and don't separate from the strip of 6 without having to cut off individually. Other than that I use these as my bowel regime since my disability in 1984.

Because of my slow metabolism I would be constantly constipated without the daily intake of this product. It is a lifesaver to me.
