This is Dr. David
I assume you are taking colace stool softener
taking this every night will not cause poor digestion.
Anafranil can cause upset stomach, dyspepsia, and nausea symptoms.
most likely it is the Anafranil which is causing your GI symptoms.
taking a probiotic pill could help add more good bacteria into your system and could help your digestion.
regular exercise and drinking more water can help your digestion as well
you can try eating prunes and prune juice daily to help soften your stools as well.
taking colace daily is fine and can be done safely
