Docusol Solution is one of a group of medicines called laxatives. They are usually used to prevent and treat constipation. Docusol Solution is usually used to treat and prevent constipation. Docusol Solution may also be used before a stomach X-ray.
Docusate is used to soften the poo and make bowel movements easier. Constipation can often worry parents. Stool that is not easily passed or is not soft, means your child is more than likely constipated.
In rare cases, constipation can be caused by a lack of nerves going to the intestines or by a problem with the way the intestine has formed during birth. A health care provider can test for these if they feel it is needed.
Docusol Paediatric Solution
A child may need to use Docusol Paediatric Solution if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Not done a poo at least 3 times in the last week
- Stool is large and hard
- Stool looks like “rabbit droppings” or little pellets
- Showing signs of strain or pain when pooing
- Bleeding due to how large and hard their poo is
- Poor appetite or stomach pain that improves after having a poo
Constipation is extremely common and affects people at all stages of life. Most of the time children with constipation can be cured at home using medication such as a Docusol Paediatric Solution or changes in diet.
Some of the most common causes of constipation in children include:
- Not getting enough fluids
- Eating foods low in fibre
- Not regularly sitting on the toilet or potty
- Unable to rest their feet on the floor or a step
- Anxiety, such as not wanting to poo in certain situations, like nursery or school
- Seeing using the toilet as a stressful situation
Docusol Paediatric Solution will be recommended if your child is already eating solid foods, alongside diet and lifestyle changes. It can take up to a couple of months before Docusol Paediatric Solution or other treatments work.
Docusol Paediatric Solution 125ml
Docusol Paediatric Solution 125ml contains 1290mg of sorbitol in each dose (5ml). Sorbitol is a source of fructose. If the child’s doctor has told you that the child has an intolerance to some sugars or if the patient has been diagnosed with hereditary fructose intolerance, a rare genetic disorder in which a person cannot break down fructose, talk to a doctor before a child uses this medicine. Sorbitol may cause gastrointestinal discomfort and mild laxative effect.
Docusol Paediatric Solution 125ml also contains 15mg of aspartame per dose (5ml). Aspartame is a source of phenylalanine. It may be harmful if the child or patient has phenylketonuria (PKU), a rare genetic disorder in which phenylalanine builds up because the body cannot remove it properly.
Lastly, Docusol Paediatric Solution 125ml contains less than 1 mmol sodium (23mg) per 5 mL dose, that is to say essentially ‘sodium-free’.

If the patient takes more Docusol Constipation Relief than they should
If the patient takes more Docusol than they should, the patient should drink lots of water. The nearest hospital casualty department should be contacted or the patient’s doctor must be informed immediately.
If the patient forgets to take Docusol Constipation Relief
Give the patient their usual dose and then continue the normal course of treatment. Do not give a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask the doctor or pharmacist.
Call the health care provider if any of the following occurs:

- Their stomach looks bloated or filled with gas, and develops vomiting whilst constipated.
- You see blood in their stool.
- Constipation doesn’t get better when using Docusol Laxative or other treatment options.
In rare cases, constipation can be caused by a lack of nerves going to the intestines or by a problem with the way the intestine formed at birth. Your baby can be tested for these conditions if your health care provider feels it is needed. In cases like this, Docusol Laxative and other treatments like this are likely to be ineffective.
