“I was given this bottle of Lactulose by the local hospital where I am currently undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. My constipation causes me more pain than I can describe, the cramps and vomiting have caused me quite a few sleepless nights. I felt the pain coming on at about 3 in the afternoon and was expecting to be in agony by 7pm. I took the Lactulose at about 3.30pm and by 7pm I was alright and the cramps disappeared and no vomiting. I cannot state how much relief I felt knowing that I would get a good night’s sleep without pain and constipation. I’ve just rang my family to let them know that I’ve finally found something that gives me relief without grief. Best yet.”
“This is the best medicine I’ve ever used for my constipation. I also have irritable bowel syndrome.”
