Keriamon - I noticed alot of different med's that were available OTC in the UK and Australia, but that you had to arm-twist your doctor for the same here. Dumb! Lactulose is a non-soluble sugar solution and I need a prescription. On the other hand, they'll be happy to give me Sucralose (which is almost the same) OTC. Like I said, dumb!!!
Yes, I did try it after I stopped taking the Miralax -- I even started at 4 tablespoons...hardly anything happens (and I mean hardly). It's just too painful! I've reverted back to my regular laxative which doesn't work all that well either, but it's better than nothing at this point. I'm trying desperately to avoid surgery on my small bowel... can you tell?! LOL
