It is perfectly safe to use stool softeners for the young ones, provided, you use them under the supervision of a pediatrician. This is important to avoid the possible side effects. Many people start using stool softener, but as soon as the child begins to have normal bowel movements, immediately cease to use it. This often leads to recurrence of the problem. Unlike adults, children are least likely to become addict to laxatives, hence, it is alright to continue the stool softener for 6 to 8 months. Once the child resumes his normal bowel movements, go on reducing the dosage, instead of stopping it abruptly.
If the child complains of these symptoms, you should visit a pediatrician for check-up. At times the child may suffer from severe diarrhea, dizziness, bleeding rectum, respiratory problems, not passing enough urine as well as weakness. In such a case, the child needs to be taken to the hospital or doctor immediately.
