Long-term use of any laxative, including cascara sagrada, can lead to a potassium deficiency. A low potassium level in the body can increase the effect of digitalis drugs and cause irregular heartbeats. For this reason, consult your health care provider if you are taking cardiac glycosides, corticosteroids, or antiarrhythmics. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking drugs inducing hypokalaemia or thiazide diuretics, consult a health care practitioner for advice about your situation. Additionally, if you have inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, or if you have been diagnosed with an intestinal obstruction of any kind, you should consult a health care practitioner before using a laxative or colon cleansing supplement. Consult a health care practitioner if your constipation lasts for more than one week.
