My problem was coincidental to taking Lactaid Fast Act. I was diagnosed with gall bladder disease and my severe vomiting,cramps and diarrhea were due to a blockage in my bile duct. It ...

    I like most reviewers here began using Lactaid Fast Act after feeling nauseous and gassy after drinking milk or eating ice cream. The first few times it really seemed to help. Around the 5th or 6th use the bloating and stomach upset seemed worse than without Lactaid so I thought maybe I should use 2 pills. Same result the first time taking 2 pills. The next time taking two pills I developed seve ... Show Full Comment

As I am sitting here cramping and bloated in pain. I wish I believe ... Show Full Comment

    My husband is lactose intolerant and takes Lactaid all the time. Milk has recently start bothering me so I switched to lactose free milk. I took one of his pills and a few hours later, I started vomiting and having diarrhea for hours, thought I was going to die. Had a similar experience last summer on a cruise, where I felt queasy, husband gave me one of his lactaid pills to 'help' and I s ... Show Full Comment
