No it will not: Docusate will not interfere with your medications at all. Best wishes.

Iatrogenic cause: It could be that the propranolol, Mirtazapine or the Clonazepam could actually be causing the constipation. Another thought is that it could be their additive effects. Now, granted, these medications may be doing a lot to stabilize you so the constipation may be just a nuisance compared to the alternative! i would talk to your prescribing physician about this and see what the next step is best!
