SURFAK®, a stool softener, is indicated for the relief of occasional constipation. SURFAK is a convenient, once a day therapy, which provides gentle prevention and superior relief from the discomfort associated with passing stools related to trauma, lifestyle, or aging. It works gently by drawing water into the stool, making it softer and easier to pass. Regularity can be expected to return in 12 to 72 hours.
