Fleet Soft-lax is an effective aid to prevent the formation of hard stools that may lead to constipation. The stool softener facilitates absorption of water by the stool, making it softer and easier to pass. Fleet Soft-lax relieves straining, minimizing painful bowel movements often associated with hemorrhoids, post-partum, or post-surgery. Fleet Soft-lax works in 12 to 72 hours.
