When we eat, the food breaks down into small pieces and is sent to the small intestine for further absorption of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The waste material which is left out after the process of absorption, is excreted in the form of stool. Normally the color of the stool varies from light to medium brown.
Stool softeners are safe, however, they should be taken only once in a while. Moreover, one should also be aware of the different side effect ssuch as cramps, throat irritation, diarrhea, allergies, etc. that can occur after taking some over-the-counter stool softeners. Even the best stool softeners in the drug stores have side effects, thus, it is always important to consult your health care provider before taking any over-the-counter stool softeners.
