Question How good is Equate brand of laxative (Walmart's equiv of Senokot)?

I'm brand new here and have concerns regarding constipation.

I've done some research on constipation, definitely have it, have personal concerns about using a stool softener and I think I need to try a laxative. I'm nervous about this, but bought Walmart's Equate brand because it has the same active ingredient in the brand Senokot, but costs far less than Senokot.

The difference in price makes me wonder about that saying "you get what you pay for", which in turn makes me wonder if Equate Laxative (Walmart's brand) is as effective as Senokot in relieving constipation?

I'd appreciate any info from anyone on here who has used the EQUATE brand of laxative. Thank you.
