    Lactulose was AMAZING for me. It was given to me at a breath test. About 2 hours after taking I felt positive emotions for the first time in many years and I had a ton of energy for about 4-5 hours after. Then it was gone

    I've tried all the alternatives listed on this thread with no success. Can't get it without a prescription in the US. Interestingly, my blood ammonia test came back low normal.

    can you remember how much lactulose you have been given?

    I know its been a while since this threads been active but i must ask: are any of the men worried at yuccas ability to mimic estrogen? Also, besides yucca what is the best thing to take during the day when I cant take charcoal so i avoid stealing up all my daily nutrients and can't really take ornithine or arginine since those are meant to be taken on a empty stomach.....

    I take an arginine/ornithine combo about 15 minutes before meals.

    how much do you take? have you tried citrulline or citrulline malate?

    I took arginine and felt GREAT! so much mental organization.. it was like reverse ADD :) I think I took too much and I crashed, but it was the first time that I realized how much cardiovascular problems may be a culprit... I'd love to find a way to safely increase nitric oxide, or the correct nitric oxide.. thanks.

    I've run out of it (just taking ornithin) and my anxiety, etc., has been worse again, so I should try and go back and see if there's a change. I haven't tried citrulline. Malate doesn't seem to agree with me...

    I'm not sure how laculose lowers ammonia, but it just does. It's a prescription drug. I tried it for constipation and didn't see any effects except for gas.

    I think the recommended dose of lactulose for reducing ammonia that is causing mental and other physiological issues (at least in the UK anyway, its non prescription here) is 30 - 50ml 3 times a day, but I'd start at 15ml twice a day or less to get used to it as it has laxative effects and bearing in mind taking the least amount possible to obtain a 'response' is a sensible approach when taking anything.
    Please note I am not a doctor or medically trained.
