Digestive System Home > Senna
Senna is a botanical product available in over-the-counter medications that are often used as stimulant laxatives. Some products can also be used to prepare the bowels for colonoscopies or other similar procedures. The medication is believed to work by irritating the lining of the digestive tract, which causes fluid secretion and helps stimulate movement through the colon. Potential side effects include cramping, bloating, and abdominal pain.
