Not really. They are finding that some of the herbs that are used can cause problems too. Particularly cascara sagrada.

I have been taking various laxatives over the past 5 years and have noticed that herbs are slower to work than the direct medicines (drugs) and remember that everybody is different and responds differently to medications. As far as safty I think most should have been checked with studies and the labels may say that.
