My husband is on Lactulose. In the hospital, he had been on powder form (20 mg). Here at home, I have liquid form and need to know how many mL it takes to equal 20 mg.
Lactulose Dosage and Administration
The usual dose is 1 to 2 tablespoonfuls (15 to 30 mL, containing 10 g to 20 g of Lactulose) daily. The dose may be increased to 60 mL daily if necessary. Twenty-four to 48 hours may be required to produce a normal bowel movement.
Note: Some patients have found that Lactulose solution may be more acceptable when mixed with fruit juice, water or milk.
