my husband has been taking lactulose for some time now. it is no longer working for him. is there anything stronger he can take on a regular basis for his constipation? he is diabetic, an amputee has a large hiatal hernia and currently bedridden with a fractured hip and very miserable.

I take pain meds and battle constipation. I have liver problems and the doctor gave me lactulose 10 mg to take to get rid of ammonia as well as have good movements. I was constipated two days before I started taking the prescription, then it got worse. instead of helping me I haven t had one in about 8 days and am feeling really tight, irritable, etc. I was taking ducolax every day as well. HELP!

I have a three month old baby whom I tried lactulose on for the first time today, he s had one dose and about three hours later he woke from his nap screaming in pain and completely inconsolable, I just wandered if it s caused by the lactulose? I managed to get him to drink and he s fallen asleep now but I worry when he wakes he will be in pain
