It is perfectly safe to use stool softeners for the young ones, provided, you use them under the supervision of a pediatrician. This is important to avoid the possible side effects. Many people start using stool softener, but as soon as the child begins to have normal bowel movements, immediately cease to use it. This often leads to recurrence of the problem. Unlike adults, children are least likely to become addict to laxatives, hence, it is alright to continue the stool softener for 6 to 8 months. Once the child resumes his normal bowel movements, go on reducing the dosage, instead of stopping it abruptly.
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.
Stool softeners as the name suggests, are substances that increase the water-holding capacity of stools and increase the bulk of stool, which in turn stimulates bowel contractions and helps passage of stool out of the body. They are used to relieve problems of constipation and irregular bowel movements. Constipation is a condition in which the person's stool is hard, dry and difficult to evacuate from the body, resulting in irregular bowel movements. Moreover, passing hard stool becomes painful and uncomfortable. People suffering from constipation have their food staying longer in the digestive tract. This results in production of toxins, which make their way into the bloodstream of the body. These toxins can trigger diseases like cataract, arthritis, colon cancer, appendicitis, etc. To prevent all these problems one should use stool softeners.
