What is Duphalac (lactulose)?
Duphalac (lactulose) is a type of sugar. It is broken down in the large intestine into mild acids that draw water into the colon, which helps soften the stools.
Duphalac is used to treat chronic constipation.
Duphalac may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
How should I take Duphalac (lactulose)?
Take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.
Measure liquid medicine with a special dose-measuring spoon or cup, not a regular table spoon.
The liquid form of Duphalac may become slightly darker in color, but this is a harmless effect. However, do not use the medicine if it becomes very dark, or if it gets thicker or thinner in texture.
Duphalac (lactulose) powder should be mixed with at least 4 ounces of water. You may also use fruit juice or milk to make the medication better.
