Just seeking other people dealing with cirrhosis looking for advice etc
Chronic Liver Disease & Cirrhosis
Chronic Nausea and Vomiting
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.
I was on lactose years ago and made me sick so I I. Told my dr I could not take it anymore and asked for something else .she tnen prescribed me XIFAXIN 550 MILAGRAMS 2 times a day
Insurance never wants to pay for it cuz it's Very Expensive but ur Dr.can get it Pre authorized and get it approved and it's a pill form and it's so much better .I've been on it for at least 5 years now . Hope.my advise helps you
It does help thank you so much!
ur welcome. Let me know if ur dr gets u o. That and I'll say prayers for u in the meantime.
