Mannitol has terrible side effects

Review Questions: 
State: New Jersey
Age: 55-65
Review Text: 
Really shocked. I was using these and suffered worse bloating and discomfort than if I had regular dairy. I love all of the Lactaid products except for this one. The added ingredient "Mannitol" is know to cause gastric upset including gas and bloating. Called the company to infirm them. I had to switch to the chewable product "Say yes to Dairy" as it works without the side effects in this product. Surprised that the Mannitol is included. Defeats the purpose of the product.

Love this product. As I take it with the first bite, the taste of the chewable gets replaced by whatever I'm eating. Love the chewable and I recommend this product!

I have been using these ever since I was really little and probably will the rest of my life. I am extremely lactose intolerant. The swallowable pills don't seem to work nearly as well for me so I have to get the chewable. They have never failed me. Not even any notion that I even ate dairy at all. They taste good and work exceptionally well. I keep a box in every car and at least 2 in the house at all times. I have experimented with other brands and they don't work for me at all. If I could buy stock in these I would!

Great For Children

Review Questions: 
State: New Jersey
Age: 35-44
Review Text: 
Lactaid Fast Act chewables are great for children. My son who is 6 years old (too young to swallow pills or caplets) is able to enjoy milk or any other dairy with these pills. I was so happy when I had found out they had made these in a chewable form. I like that they come in individual packaging so I can keep some in my purse for him ( and sometimes myself).

Caused Extreme Vomiting and Diarrhea

Review Questions: 
State: New Mexico
Age: 35-44
Review Text: 
I took Lactaid Fast Act three times and got violently ill with vomiting and diarrhea that lasted for three hours each time. (I did not realize it was the lactaid making me sick until the third time I took it because I don't have a problem with any of their other products.) I reported the problem to Lactaid and they did refund my purchase. However, the associate told me that because I experienced diarrhea they were going to consider it a bought of lactose intolerance! I tried to explain that my experiences were much worse than my normal lactose intolerance, but she just kept reading the same statement. Very sad the company would ignore a potential allergic reaction or lot problem.

I've been lactose intolerant all my life. I'm 71 now. When Lactaid was introduced to me in late 70's, I've been able to enjoy all foods since then!

I don't go anywhere without Lactaid caplets or chewables. The only time I have a problem with dairy now is when I forget to take the Lactaid (which is quite rare). Thank you for such a helpful, reliable product!!

I began experiencing bloating and diarrhea when eating dairy and my doctor recommended these. Every time I used the pills, I ended up with worse symptoms and vomiting. I gave up after four attempts.
