I personally feel better using stool softners. I have taken them nightly for years. If I miss a day without a bm I am pretty miserable the next day. So taking them nightly keeps things softer and easier to pass. And no mixing gunky stuff with something to drink, its just two soft gels a night. Good luck! JMHO
