Comment:
I started taking Lactaid fast acting chewables because I thought it would help my digestion of certain dairy products. The first time I followed directions precisely and became very ill, very quickly. I did not vomit, but the diarrhea lasted for 2 days. Since I didn't make the connection, I tried the same food again with precise dosing and within an hour I had severe vomiting, severe diarrhea ... Show Full Comment
