I take linzess and lactulose for irriatble bowel syndrome. Why do I get excess gas after I have had several bowel movements?

In brief: Lactulose

Lactulose contains a poorly digestible sugar and is well known for causing gas.
Consult with your doctor about stopping it as you may not need it while taking linzess. Good luck!
