Mechanism Of Action
Stool softeners like Lexicon are anionic surfactants. They decrease the surface tension of stool to encourage absorption of water. Lexicon has an emollient laxative mechanism. It acts like a detergent that stimulates salt and water secretion into the colon and promotes movement of stool through the colon. It allows water and fat to penetrate the faecal mass and softens the stool which assists its removal.
