There is (or rather was) a condition known as "cathartic colon" that is believed to be caused by stimulant laxatives such as senna. However, recent data demonstrates that condition was caused by older laxatives and that laxatives of today, senna included, do not do this.Senna can pigment the colon, turning it black, however. This is just a cosmetic effect.
