This medicene kept me awake all the time and IF was not able to fall asleep. I was wondering if anyone else had problems with it?
Yes, I did take this quite a while ago. I always made sure I had it flavored because he taste was very unpleasant.Never had trouble sleeping, but I also have taken Trazadone at bedtime for years which is VERY helpful in falling asleep with no drowsiness. The Lactulose was not very effective for long, so I was put on Amitiza 24 mcg. One pill ever morning an 1 at dinnertime, it made quite a difference. I NO longer take the Lactulose. I have been on big doses of narcotics for quite a while, and I only weigh 100 lbs, so when I am constipated it really hurts my back. Rarely I give myself a injection of Relistore 8 mg.which causes an extremely effective BOWEL movement in minutes. Yes, minutes! Hopefully if you let your DR. Know about the side effects you have, he can find a solution to your problem. Wish you success with this difficult symptom. MRSDJMCW
