    I would be lost without this product and am upset that
    it is no longer sold in stores. The new Ultra does not
    work for me, no matter how many I take. I would
    prefer extra strength but am just happy that this
    option is still available.

    I thought I would purchase these instead of my normal vanilla chewable lactaid. Sometimes you don't want to chew a vanilla-flavored tablet if you're not going to follow it up with a dairy dessert like ice cream. I wanted a non-flavored version for when we were eating pizza or broccoli cheddar soup.

    I also thought I would be getting a better deal. There were more tablets in this container for a smaller price. However, with the vanilla chewables, you just need 1 tablet and with these unflavored tablets, it requires 3 at a time! I found it inconvenient and prefer to take 1 tablet.

        Comments about Lactaid Original Strength Lactase Enzyme Supplement, Caplets, 120 ea:

        I have to take 6 in order for it to work for my lactose intolerance, but they are small caplets so it's easy to swallow. However, I wish I didn't have to take 6 of them-too many and expensive. But I do get to eat some dairy sometimes with it. I am trying to not eat too much dairy. I still cannot eat soft(I don't yet know if it is some of them or all) or not hard cheeses, like in pizza, and I can't eat ice cream-I think most ice creams have some skim milk or lowfat in them even though they are not lowfat ice creams. I tried even with 8 or 10 caplets for those and it still didn't work. Also, this has magensium stearate in it, so I don't want to take too much. I also take other supplements, most without magnesium stearate, but some still have that, so I am trying to not take too much of it. I am able to eat parmesan cheese, Fage Greek Yogurt 2% fat, butter, with 6 caplets. For the ice cream, I am going to try to make my own with heavy cream. Otherwise, I can eat I guess sherbets and sorbets. But hopefully, homemade ice cream works for me with 6 caplets also. God bless you all.

          Comments about Lactaid Original Strength Lactase Enzyme Supplement, Caplets, 120 ea:

          My son has severe lactose intolerance so we keep Lactaid everywhere. In the cars, house, his backpack and wallet. He's careful to avoid eating foods with dairy, but once in a while a restaurant serves something that has a dairy product in the recipe which he'll know within 5 minutes. And if he didn't carry Lactaid all the time so would everyone around him. It's like a dairy Epipen for him, instant relief. Then there are times when he craves a glass of milk, a bacon cheeseburger, pizza or chicken fettuccine Alfredo so he knows by taking a Lactaid first, he (and the rest of us) won't suffer for it.

            I use Lactaid whenever I have cheese or milk to alleviate symptoms associated with lactaid intolerance - such as gas or bloating. It works really well and I do not have these problems if I use it before eating cheese and/or drinking milk.

            I find it much more economical to purchase a bottle of pills instead of individual packages.

              I became lactose-intolerant 40 years ago and am dependent on lactase tablets to retain a normal diet including milk products.
              'Lactaid Original' suits my needs very well. Half a tablet suffices for any meal such as cereal with half a pint of milk. One tub of 120 tablets lasts me about 3 months.
              (Your reviewer who needed a screwdriver to open the tub had not read the instructions...)

                          I was diagonosed with Lactose Intollerance and found I was in great discomfort if I consummed any dairly products. After discovering Lactase I can again eat dairy products and milk. I do not eat alot of dairy, but just before I put that cream in my coffee or have a serving of cheese I just have one Lactase tablet. I usually have 1 to 2 a day. These really work and have made a huge difference for me.

                                I chew 3 Lactaid ORIGINAL STRENGTH tablets before eating anything with dairy. I cant use the other Lactaid products...ONLY THE ORIGINAL STRENGTH. I cant thank you enough for carrying these. I can't find them in our local stores and I'd be in big trouble without them.
                                Thank you so much.
