Customer Question

I have been taking herbal ICF2 capsules for 4 years now as I suffer from terrible constipation. I've tried everything but these are the only ones that help. No diets have been succesful either. They contain Senna which I have heard after long term use can be bad for your liver? Is there a test I can purchase and is it bad for you? I take at least 5 capsules a day......thank you

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.
have you tried miralax?
Expert:  Dr. C. Rollins replied 2 years ago.
It is fine to take senna for 5 years at the dose you have been. If you want to check your liver function you can have your Dr do this for you or purchase a test at your local pharmacy. Hopefully this fully answers your question once satisfied please rate my answer thanks
