Lactaid Pills?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.
