... plain he gags and ends up puking. Can't read some of above. Can the liquid be mixed with Kefir and still be effective? His is 10 Gm/15ml Sil Hi/T. Does freezing Lise its effectiveness?
Gag2017, YOU GUYS SHOULD CALL THE DOCTORS OFFICE AND THE Pharmacist right away to get the answer he is going to have to take this and it could be as simple as the pharmacy adding a flavor to the Lactulose which is common. But they still need on okay from the Doctor so you do some calling to make sure the Pharmacist can talk to the doctor today. good luck
Per the FDA drug information, you must not freeze Lactulose. It may be kept in the refrigerator, however, and you could get it very cold with ice crystals (as in a slushy) as long as it does not freeze.
Yes you can mix the amount of Lactulose prescribed to you with juice, coffee or any liquid but I'm not sure if you can freeze it with juice or whatever drink he wants but I would still ask his Dr about freezing it & if freezing it would breakdown the liquid molecules or weaken the effectiveness of Lactulose!! I also couldn't drink it because of the sugary thickness & it would make me gag & the majority of the time I would throw up & I told my Doctors I just can't tolerate it & they left my hospital room & when one Dr returned she told me that I could put it in any drink I wanted but because it is sweet, I would not mix it with any sugary drinks! I like to use orange juice, plain coffee & unsweetened tea because I like sweet tea but after you mix the Lactulose in tea or plain coffee you can add sugar or if you want it to be sweeter I would recommend adding a little sweetner at a time & to his preference!! Unless your husband likes real sugary drinks.
