Docusate is a stool softener. It makes bowel movements softer and easier to pass. Docusate is used to treat constipation, and to reduce pain or rectal damage caused by hard stools or by straining during bowel movements. Docusate may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide. Use this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Take this medication with a full glass of water. Do not crush, chew, break, or open a docusate capsule. Swallow the pill whole.
