sad  My husband and I are feeling pretty down. He has been very sick since he started the latulose n/v and of coarse the diarreha. He can't keep anything down now.  He keeps saying that he can't take the latulose if he is going to be this sick all the time. I understand what he means he has  stomach pains and  is vomiting at least every couple of hours. We were not prepared for this the doctor did not tell us that he could be this sick from it.  That angers me. mad   I wish we could change doctors but are hands are tied he is a veterean and goes to the VA.  He can't go anywhere else because of his disability.  He can't have my insurance because we couldn't afford all the copays for meds test ect. Well enough of that i hope all of you are doing well.  I just want you to know that I'm so glad i found this web site and there is other people to vent to. Thanks for listening and giving me all your input it is very much appreciated.  Thanks hopefull2

Hello Hopefull2, I am so sorry that your husband is having such a hard time with the lactolose. My husband had a very hard time with it also. Has he tried mixing with different drinks? Soda, juice etc. When we started mixing it my husband was able to hold it down better. It finally got to where he could drink it straight and not throw it up anymore. He got use to it after a while. He still didn't like it but it did get a whole lot easier for my husband to take. Hang in there..........thoughts and prayers....
