    I don't quite understand the following dosage, as a single pill of Senna that I have is 500mg, one to three times a day. And the following is a suggested dosage I got from WEB MD: "For constipation in adults and children age 12 and over: the usual dose is 17.2 mg daily. Don't take more than 34.4 mg per day." Can someone explain this?
