Yes: Using duphalac (lactulose) occasionally for constipation is fine. Try to do some of the following to decrease your risk of constipation: drink at least 2 liters of water daily, eat a high fiber diet and/or add a fiber supplement to take daily, exercise regularly like walking for 30 minutes a day and add a daily probiotic. Good luck to you.
