  • Perceived effectiveness for Constipation: None
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: I took docusate sodium as prescribed by my pain management physician, at the maximum dose for a month. It didn't do anything to soften my stools. I found fiber seems to work best for that, as well as for helping frequency issues.
