Brief Answer: Detailed answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. Hydrocodone is known to cause constipation. Docusate sodium is a stool softener. But docusate sodium alone will not be effective in relieving constipation. As a next step you can take lactulose (15-30 ml twice a day). This is very effective in relieving constipation due to hydrocodone. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
