Constipation is when a person doesn’t have regular bowel movements (or struggles to poo), which can leave them feeling uncomfortable and bloated. One of the main causes of constipation is a lack of fibre in the diet. Lactulose Oral Solution contains the active ingredient Lactulose, which is a laxative. Laxatives relieve constipation by drawing water into the bowel, making the stool softer and easier to pass. After around 48 hours of taking your first dose of Lactulose, you should be able to pass a bowel movement (or have a poo), giving you much welcomed relief from constipation symptoms.
