I am having a difficult time tolerating lactulose. I develop severe diareha, flutulance, bloating, and cramping. My instestine slushes and grurgles like clogged pipes. I have tried doses from 30-60. I tried cutting back fom 60, but then the bowel movements stopped. My doctors says triate for 2-3 bowel movements a day, but all I get is constant diareha or northing. Any suggestions?
Lactulose intolerance is not uncommon. Is there any reason why you can't take another type of laxative eg. Metamucil, a natural fibre laxative? I am unsure of your history but you should discuss this with your doctor as there are alternatives.
