Senna fruit seems to be gentler than senna leaf. This has led the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) to warn against long-term use of senna leaf, but not senna fruit. The AHPA recommends that senna leaf products be labelled, “Do not use this product if you have abdominal pain or diarrhoea. Consult a healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing. Discontinue use in the event of diarrhoea or watery stools. Do not exceed recommended dose. Not for long-term use.
Take 1-2 gm powder at bedtime or as advised by the physician.
