When is Lactulose recommended?
No problem @contentandwell, I was most interested in knowing how the lactulose worked.

@hopeful33250 I believe anyone who has been on lactulose will tell you how good it was to get off of it. It's really obnoxious tasting and the effects of it prevent you from wanting to be around anyone else.
When I was in the hospital after transplant if I was feeling a lot of pain my husband would say in a very happy voice "No more lactulose" to make me feel better. My daughter made a joke about the whole thing and she would say the name "lactulose" in a sing-songy type of voice to make me laugh. It was an experience, for sure. Better than an HE episode though.
