terrible product

The adding of mannitol to this product causes loose bowels in many people who are allergic to artificial sweetners. Had to stop taking it altogether. The company who makes this product needs to re-evaluate their product. The fast acting product has an additive in it that contains a form of iodine. Again many people are allergic to this. Please re-evaluate the ingredients in your product.

Heads up - Only one third strength!!!!

Very disappointing to read the small print and see that the "original strength" caplets have a recommended serving of three tablets. They look EXACTLY the same as the fast acting caplets, but only one third the strength. That seems duplicitous to me - as does anything that requires studying of the small print!!!

I have used Lactaid milk for years with no issue and love the product so I decided to try Lactaid caplets. That was a huge mistake. Within 20 minutes of ingesting the caplet I projectile vomited. I had the worst stomach ever and did not get to enjoy any of the food that I was going to eat. I at first thought that this was a result of a virus so I again tried the caplets a week later with the same result. Within 20 minutes I became violently ill. I will not be trying this product again.

After years of not being able to eat dairy products, I can consume dairy again. It's a great product, and is cheaper to take three original strength tabs than two fast acting tabs.

I would like to know if these contain (are sourced from) aspergillus. If so, I am highly allergic to this fungus and should NOT take it. Your links to the ingredients are no longer accessible! Why NOT?!

Thank you for reaching out about this! You can view all active and inactive ingredients on our website. The source of our Lactase Enzyme is Aspergillus Oryzae. We'd recommend speaking to your doctor about what options are best for you. Thanks again, and we hope you have a great day!

At 64, I developed digestion issues and struggled to determine the cause. After all these years, I have become sensitive to dairy products. Thru experimentation, sometimes painful, I have learned that these tablets will alllow me to once again drink my favorite beverage. My husband and I joke that if I am ever stranded on an island, I would want milk as my drink of choice. I'd still choose that as long as I had Lactaid as well!!

The lactaid pills really do work! Took it right before eating pizza and had zero discomfort from the cheese. Only con is that you have to take 3 pills at a time.

I purchased this product and it didn't help me at all. After eating pizza I had extreme cramps and diarrhea. After the 3rd time it didn't work I threw them out. The caplets work for me as do the chewable. The Original Strength did not work and I took the full dose 3 caplets. Not recommended from me. The other products work great.
