I would suggest you ask your pharmacist or doctor that one. To my knowledge, no, and I certainly hope not because I would be addicted. I do know that it is almost impossible to overdose on them. You can become dehydrated if you take too much and constipated if you take more than is recommended for an extended period or time.

Feel better.
God bless.
