In brief: Mild laxative
Its an herbal laxative! however, a laxative is a laxative! your bowels will become dependent on it and sometimes leads to more laxative use! quite common in the elderly population.

In brief: Stimulant
Yes senna is a stimulant laxative and best not to use chronically.
Osmotic agents such as MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) are much safer with daily use.
