Stool softeners are used on a short-term basis to relieve constipation by people who should avoid straining during bowel movements because of heart conditions, hemorrhoids, and other problems. They work by softening stools to make them easier to pass.

Docusate Sodium comes in capsule form and is used to treat constipation and reduce pain or rectal damage cause by straining during bowel movements. It works by increasing the amount of water in stool, making it softer and easier to pass. Common side effects of Docusate Sodium may include dizziness, weakness, gas, bloating and sweating.
