There are certain precautions that need to be taken while going for stool softeners. If you are pregnant or are planning to get pregnant during the course, then you'd better get your physician's opinion. Also, follow all the instructions that come along with the drug, to avoid any side effects.
Taking certain medications during pregnancy can also cause green bowel movement. For instance, pregnant women reeling under a sinus infection often use antibiotics to get relief. Defecation of green feces has been attributed to intake of these antibiotics. Green bowel movement after taking antibiotics is not uncommon and usually stops after the medication is halted. Reducing the dosage after consulting a doctor might also help to restore normal stool color.
The term 'poop' refers to the solid waste matter that is eliminated out of the body during bowel evacuation. Usually, a healthy bowel movement produces brown colored stools. A change in stool color to green indicates that something is wrong with the intestines but can also mean too much consumption of certain foodstuffs. It is discussed below:
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.
