Product Information

  • Adults and children over 10: Take three 5 ml spoonfuls twice daily.
  • Children aged 5 to 10 years: Give two 5 ml spoonfuls twice daily.
  • Children aged 1 to 5 years: Give one 5 ml spoonful twice daily.
  • Babies under 1 year (under pharmacist's or doctor's recommendation): Give 2.5ml twice daily.

Ingredients

  • Active Ingredients: Lactulose 3.3g/5ml.
  • Also contains: Lactose and Galactose

Warnings or restrictions

Use only as directed. Incorrect use could be harmful.

If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.

The prolonged use of laxatives is undesirable.

Do not take Lactulose if:

  • you are allergic to lactulose or any of the other ingredients of this medicine
  • you suffer from galactosaemia (a severe genetic disorder where you cannot digest galactose)
  • you have acute inflammatory bowel disease (like Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis)
  • you have a blockage in your bowel (apart from normal constipation)
  • you have a digestive perforation, risk of digestive perforation, or unexplained abdominal pain.
