The reason why you had a stomach ache is that Lactulose is composed of a variety of modified sugars that we cannot metabolise. This does require a bit of a change over in intestinal flora and fauna: hence the gas. It actually goes away quite quickly.
It can be pretty scary when you first start that one has to think where public toilets might be, towels on the drivers seat. Farting is perilous.
Try a slightly smaller dose maybe until you get more used to it. I tolerate 30ml's now quite comfortably and always take it about an hour or two after a meal.
