Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • I have used docusate sodium stool softener, and it hasn't helped. I hate to think I will have to take laxatives the rest of my life. I used to go daily. I was taking lortab, and xanax before, and they were changed to clonazepam, and norco. After I was put on the meloxicam, oxybutynin, xanax, and lortab is when the problem started, but even then I could go every other day while taking docusate calcium. By the way, your system does not recognize docusate calcium.
