      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!

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

          @Kablanca 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 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!

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

      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!
