Lactulose Oral Solution is a popular and reliable laxative that helps relieve constipation in a gentle way.
Lactulose is a synthetic sugar which gets broken down into products that pull water into the colon. The water helps to soften your stools, and so the treatment can help you to resume normal bowel movements. Take your dose of lactulose at the same time each day, ideally at breakfast. You can take it with or without food, either drinking it directly, or diluting the lactulose with fruit juice or water.
Read the patient information leaflet carefully before use.
