Docusate versus Miralax?
I just went to the colon/rectal doctor and was diagnosed with prolapsed internal hemorroids. For now we are going to monitor things and he prescribed a supository and more fiber.
I have been taking 17mg of Miralax daily. He wants me to wean off of it and us a docusate stool softener instead 3 times a day. He said both were safe and non-habt forming but for my issues, he would prefer the stool softener.
Yesterday I had taken 2 (breakfast and lunch). By dinner, I never got to the 3rd one because I had really bad cramping (which made things worse). I know that can be a side effect.
So I am just questioning whether to keep trying the switch. Does it make THAT much of difference? Do I just need to get adjusted to the Docusate?
