I found the chewable form to be the most effective for me. Can't eat dairy without it. No side effects for me. Love it! Haven't found it in stores lately, Feb 2013, maybe its because it is made in Canada? Hope its back soon, running low.

My problems with this med didn't occur immediately (taken with milk/tea in morning), but it hit as soon as I had another meal: Both times it lay like a lump in my stomach and I was nauseated. The first time I managed to avoid vomiting (I tend to vomit for a long, long time once I start) but was miserable all day; just now I let nature take its course. As others have reported, it was violent an ... Show Full Comment
