Can a yogurt containing probiotics replace an otc stool softener?

Patient: Can a yogurt containing probiotics replace an otc stool softener?

Doctor: Thanks for your question.No, a yogurt containing probiotics can’t replace an otc stool softener. Stool softeners are also called ‘laxatives’. They do have a different role. Prebiotics, in fact, maintain the GIT flora and may be used for even loose motions.Hope this helps.
