Kathleen, I read your post and checked out the link- it has a laxative effect but does that make it a stimulant lax and also how do I know if it will interfere witht my precriptions- I take synthroid for thyroid- also will it mess with the zelnorm and reglan? the dr. probably wouldn't know right? I bought some today but am scared to take it. also for anyone taking it, how long before you saw a diffeence?

The link listed some drugs, I don't think any of them were it.http://www.supplementwatch.com/suplib/supp....asp?DocId=1196 says mild but doesn't give mechanism for laxative nature. Most herbs with laxative effects are stimulatory, not osmotic, and what led you to it said something that sounded like a stimulatory laxative (increase persistalsis or something like that?)
