Is there anyone who can't take Lactulose everyday for constipation? I have a Heart condition. Can it cause lactic acidosis?

In brief: You should be fine

Lactulose is a non-absorbable sugar, and it does not contain any lactic acid.
You should be fine. It cannot cause lactic acidosis. Hope that helps.
