How Lactulose works

Lactulose works by making the stool softer and easier to pass, by drawing more water into the bowel. It also reduces the amount of ammonia in the blood by removing the toxin from the bloodstream which helps to improve cognitive function.

  • flatulence, stomach pain
  • nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

When to consult your doctor

  • In case of accidental overdosage
  • If you experience abdominal swelling due to gas or bloating

Health Tips for Lactulose

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay well-hydrated. Lactulose works by drawing water into the colon, which helps soften stools and ease bowel movements
  • Include dietary fiber in your diet from sources such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. Fiber can aid in regulating bowel movements and complement the effects of lactulose
  • Engage in regular physical activity if your doctor approves. Exercise can help promote bowel regularity and overall digestive health
  • Establish a regular bowel routine and try to use the bathroom at the same time each day, especially if you have chronic constipation
  • If you have hepatic encephalopathy, it's essential to avoid alcohol consumption, as it can worsen the condition. Smoking can also negatively impact digestive health and overall well-being
  • Take this medicine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow the recommended dosage and dosing schedule to manage your condition effectively
