I drank this brand called "Skinny teatox" tea last night and it made me so sick I had to be in the bathroom all night and had the WORST stomach cramps from it. Has anything like this ever happened to anyone before? I'm definitely not going to keep drinking it anymore.

Hello writerc17,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community members for their experiences with detox tea.

Check the list of ingredients. According to the Skinny Teatox website, " All the ingredients in Skinny Teatox are 100% natural. There are no chemicals or preservatives. Ingredients include: tea leaves, senna leaf, ginseng, chrysanthemum, cinnamon bark, cloves, rhubarb, ginger, and more.

On the website, you will find information regarding side effects.
"The cleansing and detox part of the teatox contains a natural laxative (Senna leaf) which contains all the possible side-effects of any laxative. This includes cramps and increased frequency of visiting the bathroom. Side effects should NOT include diarrhea, headaches, vomiting, dizziness or severe cramping - if any of those occur you must reduce the strength of the colon cleanse tea bags (soak the hot water with the tea bag for only a few seconds), or stop using the tea and consult a doctor."

There is the reason.
