I was never a big fan of drinking any form of laxative

I take stool softners nightly and they work fine for me.  Also, stool softners are NOT laxatives.  I think that is why the doctor told you to be careful, laxatives longterm can be problematic.  My gi has no problem with me taking the stool softners nightly. Have you tried Miralax?
