Senna and Drug Screening
Answered by: Christine dennis
Question from: Brandy
Posted on: November 19, 2008

I am drinking tea with senna and loquat leaves to help me with constipation. I am currently on probation and I am subject to drug screening. I would like to know if these leaves could affect my test results?

No, those herbs will not affect your drug screening. I would, however, caution you again using the herbs for a long time as they can be habit forming on the bowel (bowels get used to them and need them to have a movement.) It is best to address why you are experiencing the constipation in the first place. For information on this please see:
