the difference between senna 8 6 mg tab and dss 50mg
2 Replies RSS
I've been prescribed both by the same doctor with the expressed knowledge that they are different. I don't use this doctor any longer and would like to avoid contacting her. Both are laxatives to assist with side affects from chemotherapy and narcotic pain medication. I'm curious if one is any different than the other aside from their color and manufactures. ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? Yes, they are different. The DSS stands for Docusate Sodium, it is actually considered a stool softener. Unlike a stimulant laxative, it will take 12 to 72 hours to produce a bowel movement, it really just helps soften it up, which may get it moving. Its typical side effects may include nausea and gas.

use of softovac
19 Replies RSS
i am using softovac (bowel regulator) daily night 1 spoon, are there any side effects of forming stones in pancreas etc.,, ## Softovac is a laxative that contains: cassia fistula 0.5 gm, fennel , ispaghula 2 gm, liquorice 0.25 gm, senna 0.75 gm WIth those ingredients, it is a supplement, rather than a medication and the side effect profiles are not studied for it. The only thing regularly reported is some abdominal cramping. However, you should know that if you use it every night for a long period of time, your body may become dependent on it and if you stop using it, you may be unable to have a bowel movement without it. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Sir, thanks for the reply. As I am using 1 spoon regularly in the night from last 2 years. Last 15 days back I had a tre...

I located a few paragraphs (quoted below) within an article that briefly discussed the side effects of this supplement: "Bethel S30 Side Effects It is unclear from the product website just what some of the side effects will be.
