Lactulose

Pretty much all of you will know by now that I take opiates to control my pain, and one of the problems associated with opiate use is constipation. I deal with that by taking lactulose solution. It works fine. The problem is that it tastes sweet. Disgustingly sweet, not sugar sweet; the taste it most reminds me of is that of glycerine.

The web sites all say things like "To improve the taste of lactulose, mix your dose with one-half glass of water, milk, or fruit juice." What I'd like to know, if anyone can tell me, is whether it's OK to take it in tea, since the bitterness of the tea seems to work perfectly at countering the oversweetness.
