In brief: Depends

On why you are using it.
If you are constipated and it doesn't help you poop, then try drinking more water and increasing p-fruits...Peach, pear plum, pineapple, papaya. Peas, pumpkin, pomegranate...If you are severely constipated, ask your doctor about other methods....Increased fiber can help, MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) can help, etc. You may need guidance for best results.
