          Take one every night after dinner. Works well as it has Magnesium in it and not Sodium as it's competitor. One with Sodium did me no good

            I have scar tissue/adhesion disease from a ruptured appendix 26 years ago that has altered the course of my intestinal tract...it is looped and stuck to my abdominal wall which means stool gets stuck. With Surfak stool softener, the pain of moving hard stool is eliminated [pun intented]. Used in conjunction with Poop Doc, my colon is evacuated clean several times a day.

              Ducosate calcium (which is what Surfak is) works a lot better for me than ducosate sodium. Is gentle on your system.

                This stuff is awesome! I have used other stool softeners, but was not satisfied with the results and they were not as good as this product. One pill of the Kaopectite gives you 240 mg as opposed to the others which only give you 100 mg. in which case I would have to take two pills. Not only that, there's a difference in the ingredients. The Kaopectate's ingredients have Docusate Calcium as opposed to the others': Docusate Sodium which did nothing for me. I have had ongoing issues with constipation for a few years even with the changes in diet. I highly recommend this product especially for those with chronic constipation. One pill at night is all I need. I hope this product is never taken off the market for being too good!

                  About 15 years ago my primary care physician had me taking Surfak stool softeners daily because of an ongoing problem with hemorrhoids. For whatever reason, thank goodness, that condition just ceased to be a recurring problem several years ago. I stopped taking the Surfak then. Then I hit 50. Then I completed menopause. And most recently started counting calories and watching what I ate. Next thing I knew, I was in need of Surfak again. I wasn't happy when I looked on the shelves and saw it no longer existed. Living a small town didn't help any as far as being able to shop around. My sister then told me that Kaopectate was formerly Surfak and to buy it. Only problem is that our TWO places to shop here did not carry that either. I drove to the next largest town only to find it wasn't on their shelves either. My sis came over and brought me a bottle of the Kaopectate stool softeners, as well as Acidophilous probiotic. I took both to my doctor at my semi annual checkup a few weeks ago to make sure it was okay to take and to verify that they were NOT habit forming.

                  Now something that is very important about this particular product is the ingredients. Kaopectate stool softeners contain DOCUSATE CALCIUM. Most other brands main ingredient is Docusate Sodium. Being a person with high blood pressure, I certainly didn't want a daily dose of sodium of any kind if it could be avoided.

                  I highly recommend this product as I have used it, on and off, as needed, for over 20 years. My need now is daily and I am very relieved and pleased to be "regular" again. Thank you drugstore.com for carrying this product!!

                    Years of distress with horrible colon problems -- blockages, impactions, regular use of laxatives, ER visits, etc. because of a redundant colon. Balance issues make salt-based stool softeners impossible to use since salt swells. Have become gluten free, avoiding animal meats (except for chicken/turkey broth), sticking to fish/fruits/vegs/beans, my colon is ACTUALLY LEARNING again how to function. This product helps keep what moisture I consume (since there is Sjogrens and have serious moisture destruction -- no sweat glands, etc. that function, dry eye...) in the colon. They say "Death begins in the colon" and it is true. I am using this product each day and I am now off of Ducalax, enemas, liquid suppositories (although they're in the house in case of emergency). I am sharing this product with relatives and my doctors to help others. A pharmacist told me about it and I am grateful for that advice! Nurse in my colon specialists office also related something VERY important about taking stool softeners -- you don't just drink enough water to swallow the pill. You drink the pill with a nice, big glass of water and that helps immediately to draw water into the colon. Good tidbit to remember.

                        Surfak had been disappearing from the local drugstore shelves and even the store brand calcium ducosate was being replaced by sodium ducosate. I was glad to find it here.
