## my father in law just started on this drug I need know any bad side effects it might have. Thanks ## This is used a stool softener, and it can help with constipation. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, dehydration, and diarrhea. Paula, why was it prescribed for him? Are there any markings on them? If so, can you please post back with them?

Dark stool following surgery

Is a dark stool normal when taking Colace? My husband been taking Colace since having surgery 4 weeks ago. Is this normal? ## Hello, Queenie! How are you? It could be due to the Colace, or even the medications used during the surgery, according to the NIH. However, it is always best to have it checked out by his doctor, to be sure. Is he on any other medications? What type of surgery did he have done?


I am looking for the name of a Laxative. They are hard deep red coloured round pills. Aprox 7mm across. It was a laxative but came off the shelves in the UK about 10-12 years ago. I heard they may have rebranded with a herbal version. They came in a foil blister pack. I think the outer packaging was green and the name began with a N although i cant be sure of this. ## Were they shaped like an american football? There is a medicine for stool softening agent, slightly gentler than a laxative, called colace that matches your description. it is sold over the counter in the USA, and you can research this to see if it matches what you seek.

dark green liquid capsule m6 or 93

I found them in the bottom my meds bag. I must have took them for something. . maybe a supplement? They are im printed with M6M6 or 9393 or 9M9M the M is on its side and looks like the roman numeral for 1000 ## I have the same pill found in my elderly mothers colace bottle. Do you know what it is? ## Hi Jim, Just wondering if your elderly mother had any recollection of what this might be or what it's supposed to be? I tried looking up "colace" which comes in either blue, red/white or green packaging, but they don't show you what the actual pill looks like. Apparently though the blue package contains capsules, the red/white package contains soft gels, and the green package contains tablets. Could the capsule be dark blue by chance? I suppose as a last resort it might be a...

dark red round pill imprint S44 on one side only

no this pill is a stool softener, i own them so believe me i know. ## Thanks for sharing your finding. It's really difficult to locate over the counter medications in the drug databases, so having other users post it like this is very helpful! But would you mind providing more information on the product label itself; regarding who manufacture's this product; and what the brand name of the medication is? It always looks good to have full details posted so others can know that your information is accurate and they' aren't "just" taking your word for it. Thanks again for the help! ## This is a Dollar General health brand generic stool softener plus stimulant laxative. It is comparable to Peri -Colace. Contains Docusate Sodium 50mg and Sennosides 8.6mg. ## A friend s...

red and white elliptical/oval pill

Red on one side white on one side p10 with a pink ballon on the white side ## I believe the pill you've found is a generic for Colace, this is the new logo and marking. It contains 100mgs of Docusate Sodium, which is a stool softener. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach cramps and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

Ra Col-Rite Identification

What is an oval shaped gel like pill that is purple on one side and cream color on the other side? It has P 10 on it and it is used for constipation. ## This is a generic or store brand for Colace, it contains Docusate Sodium 10mgs, used as a laxative. ## My father who is 91 has been taking RA Col-Rite 100 mg twice a day for a couple of months. He has been noticing a feeling in his face like it's swelling but it is not evident to others and says that his eyes feel puffy and dry. He uses eye drops so it's not that he's experiencing dry eyes in general. ## I cannot believe that every pharmacy in the Bronx, Rite Aid or any other, will not dispense legitimately prescribed Oxycodone.

Ducolace (NOT ducolax!)

This has been prescribed - - there is nothing on the [Rx] label, or the container, stating the ingredients. (I suppose because it IS a prescription.) I have searched far and wide trying to find out the ingredients; is it a combo of colace and ducolax? or simply some company trying to trade on the syllables "duco", since ducolax is a well-known brand name! Thanks. ## From what I could gather, Dulcolax stool softener is the same thing as Colace. They are not different other than the brand name. That said, it does make sense that Ducolace would simply be another brand name of the drug (from a different manufacturer perhaps). I'm surprised the pharmacy who filled your prescription didn't give you more details on it. It seems like they try to get people out of there as quick ...

Capsule Pill Red And White Rpc 63

Found a pill its red and white has rpc 63 does anyone know what it is ? ## Hi sparky, Based on the description provided, the closest match I could find is a red and white elliptical/oval shaped pill, marked with "RPC 053" in black print. This particular pill is identified as Colace (docusate) 100 mg; a laxative used in the treatment of constipation. Manufacturer: Purdue Pharma LP National Drug Code (NDC): 67618-0101 Is it possible that you may have mistaken the numbers on the pill, since the imprints and description are very similar?

Red Pill A92 On It

Found a red pill with A 9 2 on it. what is it for? ## I've tried looking for this quite a few times, now and I am just not pulling up anything on a pill with this marking in any of our prescription drug resources. Was it found in the U.S.? I have a sneaking suspicion that it may be something that is available over the counter. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## It is a stool softener, I asked my pharmacist for some free stool softeners and he gave me some in an unmarked pill bottle, it is colace or a substitute.
