Not normal: But all expected from lactulose. If you had such symptoms from before it may be that lactulose exacerbated your condition. Let your gastroenterologist know about your symptoms.

Diarrhea, vomiting: What sort of a test did you take for an SIBO? Did you have an endoscopy or a lactulose breath test?
