Is bad bloating a common side effect of just starting taking lactulose solution and Metamucil? How long will this it last?

In brief: Possibly

It may also be an early sign of gallbladder disease- consult your physician for testing, exam and ultrasound.
Who prescribed this combination? Pleases top all OTC and Rx medications until seen and evaluated.

In brief: Yes

Both the products you are talking may cause bloating and/or cramping.
You need to make sure that nothing else is causing this Usually, this is not self limiting and may continue. Check with you PCP, there are alternative products you may take depending on the reason you need them.
