A 52-year-old female asked:
Would 1/2 senna daily cause inconsistent bm? like firmer one day and looser another? or is it something i am eating?

Senna: Senna is a pro-motility agent (helps move things along). If your BM has different consistencies I would recommend starting a food diary and examine which foods make things more firm or loose.
