    I have cirrhosis…. I’m taking Lactulose and hate it, I’m having a hard time getting it down and once I do I become nauseated!

    I took that too immediate diarrhea. I’m no longer taking . It’s for getting ammonia out of your brain.

    I take 90 ml 3 times a day and absolutely hate the stuff. I chase it with a small amount of soda which helps a little. I have odensatron/Zofran for the nausea. Taking it is better than being admitted due to the fully functional black outs I've experienced from too much ammonia on my brain. Lactulose sucks!

    Thank you for letting me know that! I haven’t had any this weekend because the boyfriend came for the weekend and maybe I wanted a break from it, but got to take now he’s gone! Lol!

      So you’ve had blackouts? Wow I’m new to this!

        I also had a stent put in my liver, the procedure is called TIPPS, which contributes to the blackouts. During the first blackout I made a Facebook video and did not know it.
