LACTULOOZ is a medication used to treat constipation, hepatic encephalopathy, and other medical conditions. It is a type of sugar that is not absorbed by the body, but instead passes through the digestive system and draws water into the bowel, which softens the stool and makes it easier to pass.
LACTULOOZ is usually taken orally in the form of a liquid or a syrup, and the dosage and frequency of use depend on the specific condition being treated and the patient's individual needs. It is important to drink plenty of fluids while taking lactulose to prevent dehydration.
Common side effects of LACTULOOZ may include diarrhea, stomach cramps, and gas, while less common side effects may include dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, and allergic reactions. It may also interact with certain medications, such as antibiotics and antacids, so it is important to inform your healthcare provider of all medications and supplements you are taking before starting treatment.
LACTULOOZ is not recommended for use in patients with galactosemia, a rare genetic disorder, and it should be used with caution in patients with diabetes or kidney disease. It is important to discuss any pre-existing medical conditions with your healthcare provider before starting treatment with LACTULOOZ.
