What horrific side effects could one expect from long-term laxative use? By long term, I mean taken daily for the past 3-4 years.

After trying unsuccessfully to resolve constipation issues, I began occasionally taking Dulcolax laxatives and it then turned into a nightly routine. It just occurred to me that I've been doing this for at least three years now. Besides difficulties having a BM naturally, what other horrible damage am I doing to my body?
