I know that this has been covered before but I couldn't find the post for it. I know Lactaid makes pills for lactose intolerance, where could I find those and are they gluten free? Does some drug store like LONGS carry a less expensive generic version? I really would appreciate your responses guys.

Yes, Lactaid is gluten-free.


Above is a website that I found that you can look up things usually found in OTC drugs to see if they are gluten-free. This site also tells you if it is Vegeterian free also.

We always buy Equate brand. It is actually called dairy digestive supplement. Seems like it is about $10 for 120 caplets. It is a bottle inside a small box. The dosage is 3 caplets before consuming dairy products. They also sell it in a larger box, no bottle, but, the pills are on sheets inside like 4 x 3 or something like that. I am not sure on quantities, but, if you buy these, you only need 1 caplet instead of 3.

It works very well, I use it almost daily when eating cheeze, milk, and butter or salad dressing.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
