Why do I need to add juice or milk?

The active ingredient in the Pedia-Lax Liquid Stool Softener is docusate sodium. This can taste strong by itself and juice or milk helps to mask the medicine’s taste.

What is the best liquid to use?

We’ve tested the Pedia-Lax Liquid Stool Softener with apple juice, orange juice, grape juice, fruit punch and milk. All work well when combined with the Liquid Stool Softener. We do not recommend mixing this product with water.

I accidentally gave this to my child without mixing it with juice or milk. Is it OK?

Yes, there is no danger in giving this product straight from the bottle. The medicine, however, will taste stronger and your child may not like it as much as they would with milk or juice. We suggest drinking extra fluids, if the Pedia-Lax Liquid Stool Softener was taken without juice or milk. This will help to soothe any minor throat irritation that could occur.

Is it OK to give my child the Liquid Stool Softener along with any of your other Pedia-Lax products?

We do not recommend using more than one laxative product within a dosing period. Remember, when using laxative products, be sure to follow the dosing instructions on the packaging.

I have an 11 year old daughter with a condition where one of the symptoms is chronic constipation and painful bowel movements. The Pedia-Lax Liquid Stool Softener has made such a huge difference for her, and I’m so grateful this product came out! She has markedly less discomfort when using Pedia-Lax. She has so many symptoms to deal with from this genetic disorder, it’s a thrill when we find something that makes one of them easier to live with.
Thank you, — London
