THE SAFETY OF DOCUSATE SODIUM DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

THIS MEDICATION MAY CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY: Docusate sodium is considered compatible with pregnancy. There are limited human studies that have looked at the safety of docusate sodium during pregnancy, but available studies indicate that taking normal doses of docusate sodium during pregnancy should not be harmful to the developing baby. Other stool softeners are preferred. As with any medication, it is important to weigh the risks versus benefits before taking this medication during pregnancy.
