Lactose is sugar and casein is protein. They should list casein if it is present.

I would check with the manufacturer to be sure. I have heard of a low level of casein in lactose (and vice versa). It isn't as if the manufacturers are under any obligation to mention it. You can probably find a supplement without lactose, though, and avoid the problem.

Lactose in medications and supplements should technically be free of casein. You should choose another brand if you're not comfortable taking it though.

To the best of my knowledge, that is correct. I've been calling on my meds to make sure they're gfdsfcf. A few of them have said "yes, there is pharmaceutical lactose, but NO casein." I've been ok with the pharmaceutical grade lactose, no indigestion problems like I would normally get with lactose.
