    I took this medication and within a few hours became sick - I got very very nauseous. I never did vomit, but I dry heaved like I was going to. The nausea lasted hours. I thought it was maybe a soup I had for dinner, but I had the soup again a second time and didn't get sick. So, I do think my illness was the lactaid pill. The pill is definitely not worth taking! I'd rather avoid dairy all ... Show Full Comment

    Same as the other reviews. I started taking this Lactaid Fast Act about one month ago, as I suspected that I was lactose intolerant. I didn't take it every day, only once a week or less. At first it only caused me severe stomache pain, but on 11 Feb, 23 Feb, and 28 Feb, I had severe bouts of nausea and vomiting, intensely painful. These horrible reactions lasted for hours. Everytime I took ... Show Full Comment

I have even increased the dosage before eating diary and its ... Show Full Comment
