Lactulose Laxative Description

Whether it’s due to a low-fiber diet, not drinking enough water or medications you take, constipation is painful. Some individuals may simply change their eating and drinking habits and not be bothered by constipation again. Others might try adding a powdered or oral fiber supplement to their daily ritual. But when you are in pain from constipation and feel like you will never have another bowel movement, try Lactulose Laxative with a prescription from your doctor. Lactulose Laxative may also be recommended for those with hepatic encephalopathy which is a complication of having liver disease.

Relief From Constipation with Lactulose Laxative

When taken as directed, the synthetic sugar molecules that make up Lactulose Laxative are broken down in your large intestine and draws water in. The water helps to soften the stools, making it easier for you to pass them. It can take about 48 hours to work, so be patient and do not increase your dosage.

When treating hepatic encephalopathy, Lactulose Laxative or generic Lactulose reduces the absorption of ammonia from your gut. Normally your liver breaks down ammonia, but if your liver is not functioning properly then it may be bypassed and this chemical is transported in your blood and can go to your brain and cause impairment. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions Treated by Lactulose Laxative

There are those fortunate people that have a routine bowel movement around the same time once or twice a day, every day. We all eat, so we all must get rid of the waste somehow. Depending on our diet, some of us may only defecate every third or fourth day. Your bowel movements can tell a lot about your health, too.

One of the big mistakes many people make is to ‘hold it’ when they have to go. Your body is trying to tell you it’s time and you unwittingly figure you can wait and instead, you constipate yourself. If you are stuck at your desk for eight hours a day, try to stand for awhile, drink lots of water, and check that you have enough fiber in your diet to avoid becoming constipated.

Before You Take Lactulose Laxative

Ask your doctor if Lactulose Laxative is safe to take if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss with your doctor other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements so it can be determined if Lactulose Laxative is safe to take.

Lactulose Laxative Proper Use

If you feel Lactulose Laxative is too sweet, try mixing it with fruit juice, milk, or mix it into your coffee. Use a proper dosing syringe or spoon when measuring Lactulose Laxative for a child, your doctor will tell you how much to give depending on the child’s age. The doses should be at least 10-12 hours apart for the treatment time recommended by the doctor.
