Does anyone have a relief for the gas caused by taking lactulose for liver disease?  It is so embarrassing to be in the company of others when they can hear this constant reaction to gas.  Also, are the over-the-counter remedies safe?  Thanks for answering this delicate question.

Sea Wings, Since you have liver disease you should check with your GI or Hepatologist first. Too many medications are hard on the liver. My husband has an appointment on Thursday with his Hepatologist. I'll ask him then if you don't find out before. You don't want to damage your liver any further. I know it is embarrassing but your family and close friends should understand. And if it's strangers.......who cares you will probably not see them again. But please don't take anything until the doctor clears it. Take care........Pink Grandma
