Are laxatives dangerous long term?

Well, I guess laxatives could be dangerous because a few possible dangers of laxatives are:

• They could be addictive

• They could deplete electrolytes (In this case, you would want to just add the electrolytes back)

The dangers of having chronic constipation are way worse than the minor dangers of using laxatives. If you have constipation, as a coping mechanism, take an herbal natural laxative like cascara sagrada. This should give you constipation relief while you figure out what’s causing the constipation.
