I am suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome From last 3

Patient : I am suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. From last 3 days i got constipation problem so doctor recommended me lactitol monohydrate with ispaghula powder. After 6 weeks i have a final Hydrogen Breath Test to confirm any intolerance from food articles. For the test i am recommended not to take any alcoholic substances like sweetened soda, antibiotics for digestion purpose. But the salt above is derived lactose with alcohol. Should i take the powder or not?
