What other drugs affect senna supplements?

Senna should not be taken with other laxatives, including prescription laxatives, over-the-counter laxatives and herbal laxatives like aloe, rhamnus and yellow dock.

If you are taking digoxin or any blood thinners or diuretics, do not take senna without talking to your doctor. The combination of these drugs and senna can cause your potassium level to become dangerously low or may increase the risk of bleeding.
