Colace stool softener is not a stimulant laxative, so it's okay to use regularly. My husband's doctor recommends it to relieve constipation. You do want to drink plenty of water. There's a Wikipedia article about docusate sodium, if you want to know more about Colace.

The 100mg capsules are available at my local pharmacy and grocery stores, but these stores often stock only the small 30-capsule bottles. By ordering these 60-capsule bottles online, I get a quantity discount and don't have to shop for Colace so often. This is exactly the same 100mg Colace product as the one you find in brick-and-mortar stores.

I tend to have "issues" occasionally, especially if I eat cheese (which I dearly love). If I ever eat anything I know will give me issues in the near future (lets say at lunch time) I take 1-pill at lunch, 1-pill that evening, and 1-pill that following morning and I have no issues. No stomach cramping, no violent outbursts from you-know-where. Just a nice, calm pleasant release. I do make sure to drink a full glass of water when I take a pill and drink another glass of water over the next two hours as this seems to make everything flow more smoothly.

I do find that if I ever take 2-pills at once, I tend to release more gas than anything and I don't benefit as much. It may be because I'm not taking in enough water? (I'm not a big fan of drinking water).

This has been a life-saver for me as I have had hemorrhoids in the past (2-surgeries) and near-constant anal fissures (yes, it's as pleasant as it sounds) and nothing has worked as well for me as Colace. This is very gentle and reliable for me. I have two bottles on hand at home in case there is ever a shortage; I rely on it that much. I usually only have to take the 1 pill at three consecutive meals once a week to keep everything in order.

I've found these are extremely mild, though with no side effects. In fact, I upped my dose to 400mg a day, and after a week I noticed no diffference in my problem on the label-recommended dose. So, these may work well for the elderly or those experiencing only the most mild of constipation issues. If you are seeking serious relief, I doubt these are going to help much - at least based on my experience. And, of course, these are NOT laxatives and not intended for more aggressive relief of these kinds of heath issues.

This is an specailly effective for treatment of IBS constipation problems. Because it is not a laxative, It may be taken every day as needed.

This is a great laxative, no pain or stomache cramps involved in taking it, have tried the "generic" imitations and they do not work nearly as well

My doctor recommended this to me to take after having major surgery, since going under with general anesthesia can cause extreme constipation. I bought a bottle before my surgery and just tossed it to the side. About two weeks after my surgery I had the worst most painful experience in the bathroom. The next day I began taking one pill a day and boy did it make a difference!

Being a sufferer of chronic constipation and its horrible side effects for most of my adult life, I have often turned to stool softeners and laxatives to help make bowel movements easier and less painful. Colace is one of the safer stool softeners when you buy it without the stimulant laxative. I needed something that was safe and reliable for every day use, and although this product is very gentle and did work well at times, other days I would still end up constipated - even after taking the maximum dose daily, drinking lots of water, getting exercise, and avoiding constipation-causing foods like cheese, red meat, white rice, etc. During one recent, very painful episode of constipation resulting in a hemorrhoid flare up, an Urgent Care nurse told me that while Colace is very safe, she suggested that I try Miralax powder for daily use. I can't explain just what a huge difference that made! Miralax made my bowel movements very soft, well-formed, and easy to pass consistently with no side effects. I then asked my colorectal surgeon if Miralax is safe and she said absolutely, that it is the safest laxative available and perfectly fine for every day use, so I gave up the Colace. My advice? If you have occasional constipation and need a stool softener that is safe to take every day and most of the time provides gentle relief, Colace is a good product. But if you suffer from frequent, painful constipation like me and need consistent results and a safe product, go with Miralax powder.
