Colace stool softener laxative syrup is gentle, reliable relief from occasional irregularity. It is stimulant free and generally produces bowel movement in 12 to 72 hours. Docusate sodium is an anionic surfactant (surface-active agent). It lowers the surface tension at the oil-water interface of the feces, allowing water and lipids to penetrate the stool. This helps hydrate and soften fecal material and facilitates natural defecation.
Must be given in a 6 oz to 8 oz glass of milk or fruit juice to prevent throat irritation. Adults and children 12 years of age and older: 1 to 6 tablespoonfuls, or as directed by a doctor. Children 2 to under 12 years of age: 1 to 2 tablespoonfuls or as directed by a doctor. This dose may be taken as a single daily dose or in divided doses. Children under 2 years of age: Consult a doctor.
