Tablet stool softener

DS (nearly 12) has to take a stool softener. He's had Movicol and he's eaten prunes regularly. He's fed up with both (no matter how hard I try to disguise the taste of Movicol).

Since he's older and quite capable of swallowing a tablet I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a tablet that can be taken almost indefinitely?

I will, just wondered if anyone's child had been prescribed a tablet as a stool softener before we go to the GP.
