Ciloxan Ophthalmic Ointment

I was introduced to this stool softner by my obstetrician as a safe way to alleviate constipation. I have used it when needed over the years and it seems to help. However I just read about Diocytl Sodium (aka dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate and DSS) on Wikipedia. Wikipedia's article sites that DSS is used as a pesticide. Makes one wonder the longer term effects on humans.

The medication helped with my problem but then my peptic ulcer flared up. Have tried to cut down or eliminate food (citrus food, onions, etc.) still no relief with daily omeprazole capsules. Can ducusate sod medication cause peptic ulcer?

This 250mg version by Rugby I found to be completely ineffective. What I find effective are the 100mg capsules I buy at Kroger. I even took two of Rugby's and they had no effect. Either a bad batch or a bogus product.
