Hi I am new to this post, I have ben using a senna product for my constipation for about 10 years. My question is can
the magnesium work for me like the senna does. I would like to get off the senna because I heard it not that good for you, or do you think it too late for me because my colon is no longer working right

I was "hooked" on senna too. It does work well, doesn't it? Personally, I don't know how bad it really is for you, if kept at modest doses.Anyway, I weaned myself off senna, very slowly. Now, I take about 800mgs of mag a day, plus Metamucil. It works most of the time. Drink lots of water.When, I'm really bound up, I use senna, again. It works when the other milder methods fail. I keep it on hand. I like Swiss Kriss.Good luck!
