Lactulose Oral Solution: LASILUSS Oral Solution is made up of the drug Lactulose, which is used in the treatment of constipation and hepatic encephalopathy. It is a non-absorbable sugar, meaning that it is not digested in the small intestine and passes into the colon. In the colon, lactulose is broken down by bacteria into lactic acid and other products. These products draw water into the colon, which softens the stool and makes it easier to pass. Lactulose also increases the frequency of bowel movements.
Lactulose is also used to treat hepatic encephalopathy, a condition that can occur in people with liver disease. Ammonia is a waste product that is produced in the liver. When the liver is not working properly, ammonia can build up in the blood and cause brain damage. Lactulose helps to reduce the amount of ammonia in the blood by drawing it into the colon, where it is broken down by bacteria.
