My husband has cirrhosis of the liver and must take lactulose 30 mL 2 x's day, but the taste literally makes him ill. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to reduce the awful taste?

I have to take this same medication and agree that it's nasty. My nurse in the hospital this last trip told that most people mix it with chocolate milk and that drowns out the nasty flavor. I have yet to try it but it is on my list of things to try. I have tried juce and that just makes it worse as does water and plain milk.
