It is seen that stool softeners are used in the long term treatment of constipation. The dose of the softeners given to the patient depends on his condition. In some cases, the dosage may have to be increased as well. However, it does not mean, that they should be consumed everyday. Once the problem is solved, the patient should go off the stool softeners. Absorption of mineral oil and some medications from the intestine is observed, when one consumes emollient laxatives. Absorption of mineral oil is not healthy for the body, as it can accumulate in the lymph nodes and liver, where it can give rise to inflammation. It is important that a stool softener is also not consumed with mineral oil or also with other prescription medications.
Allergic reaction as a stool softener side effect is not common. However, some of the affected people may report it, in rare cases. Allergies are in the form of hives, skin rashes, swelling of hands, and tongue, etc. If the allergic response is accompanied by difficulty in breathing, you may need to call emergency services.
Have you ever been in comfortable company and spoken about the color of stool? On an honest note, not many people appreciate talking openly about their bowel movement sessions. It, normally, is a topic that is shunned and detested, especially on the dinner tables! However, it should be borne in mind that the stool color in adults can cause involuntary worry.
These were some stool softeners that can help you. Along with this, you should try to avoid meat, eggs, ice cream, junk foods, cheese, whole milk, aerated drinks, sugary foods, cakes and pastries, yogurt, and cooked carrot from your diet; these foods cause constipation. Consult your doctor if discomfort due to constipation increases or if you can't find relief in a day or two.
