I am really constipated at the moment. I am prescribed lactulose but it's not working. If I take more will it help to relieve the constipation?

I would only take it as prescribed. I was once prescribed movicol for the same reason, I took two doses at the same time and spent the evening on the toilet, I didn't even feel any better because of how ill it made me.

Double check you have taken the proper dose and see if the leaflet provided says anything about it not taking affect.

Most times constipation will start shifting within 48 hours.
