Any information on lactulose? My friend has been prescribed it by the hospital and she is very reluctant to take it due to the nature of the medication. ## This medication is most commonly used to treat constipation, and some types of liver disease. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, bloating, stomach pain, flatulence, and diarrhea. What condition is being treated?

lactulose qualitest

I have taken Lactulose for many years, the last year at a higher dose because the HE/ liver issues have worsened. NO fun, but doable. My insurance won't cover Xifaxin because lactulose exists. I picked up the new Rx at CVS today, but was puzzled by the "Green Coloring" notice. Since I am allergic to so many things, i hesitated--it has ALWAYS BEEN COLORLESS--but tried it anyway. I got one tbs down and gagged so hard I had it come through my nose! Even their website says "clear." (My previous Rx have been "Generlac Lactulose"; I will let my Dr know to ONLY write for that brand.) I DUMPED THE REST OF THE QUALTEST down the drain.

jactulerne 30 ml

The doctor wrote me a script of some medicine it.s either spelled jactulene or lactulene ## Hello, Jessica! How are you? What was it prescribed to treat? I think you may be talking about Lactulose, which is used to treat constipation and liver problems. It also makes sense with that dosage. Side effects may include abdominal cramping, diarrhea and flatulence.

Chornic constipation

I am suffering from chronic constipation for the last 30 years coupled with gas problem. I have possibly all available medicines like pan -40 mg, zintec-150 mg, Razo-20 mg, some laxatives etc but of little use. Is endoscopy the only option left in my case. Kindly advise me . ## I have suffered from chronic constipation and IBS for most of my adult life. Since my hysterectomy, and gall bladder surgery, my condition has worsened. I have been tested for Chron's Disease and that was negative. I was recently referred to a GI Specialist, who initially started me on Amitzia. I had very uncomfortable side effects, including abdominal cramping, diarrhea, and nausea. He then switched me to Linsza. When I take the Linsza, I honestly cannot get off of the toilet for several hours, due to consta...

Taking Lactulose with a Penicillin allergy

I'm allergic to penicillin and the nurse has given me lactulose solution to take. Is this safe?? ## Yes, they are not related, at all. Penicillin is an antibiotic that's used to treat various types of infections. Learn more Penicillin details here. You can usually recognize its relatives by that cillin on the end, another example would be Amoxicillin, it is a close relative. However, Lactulose is a non-digestible sugar that's used to treat constipation. Learn more Lactulose details here. Are there any other questions I can help with?

hep c

is there a substitute for liquid lactulose - pill form ? My son doesn't like taking it and would rather a pill ## LACTULOSE PILL FORM ? ## The only thing that I've found is Kristalose which comes in packets in powder form. If you mix it with chocolate milk you really can't taste it. It's pretty expensive, though.
