I bought lactaid with high hopes it would enable me to have food with milk in it. Interestingly, the first two or even three times I took it, it worked. (I have medically diagnosed lactose intolerance.) THEN, on the 4th time, I had a severe reaction about 2 hours after taking the pill with food as directed.

Comment:
I took Lactaid Fast Act Oral several times without incident. Then a week ago I took it and was violently ill three hours later, with chills, vomiting, and diarrhea. I thought it was food poisoning, but the next time I took the Lactaid, the same thing happened.
