    According to my daughter's doctor if you have this reaction to lactaid products, you are not lactose intolerant, you are lactose ALLERGIC. Which is what causes the severe reaction.

    The same thing happened to me. About a week ago I made some taco's. I thought it would be nice to have some sour cream with it. So I had a lactaid pill. About an hour later I was vomiting horribly. I didn't connect the vomiting to the pill. So last n - 54% more...

    I think it may be something in the pill that removes or blocks the lactose from regular milk. I tolerate the milk just fine. But I took the pills on the morning of my son's surgery and had a severe bout of nausea. I went to the bathroom and everythin - 38% more...

    Lactaid OK but watch the expiration date
    I have now successfully used lactaid on a number of pizza nights using between 6 to 8 pills taken right before a meal. But I think that using a fresh bottle makes a big difference, don't count on them after the expiration date.

    The Lactaid Fast-acting tablets and caplets are supposed to have exactly the same ingredients. Tablets do me NO GOOD whatever, whereas I've always done well with the caplets! Why is this?

    Responding to Trjgood. It only happened to me when I took the lactaid pill. For some reason, I'm ok with lactaid milk. I did a little research on the ingredients of the pill versus the milk and it's a different enzyme used in the milk.
