I've been lactose intolerant since 1984. I've used Lactaid and its generic equivalent with mixed results. They worked if I took 2 or 3 before eating milk products. Problem was I didn't always remember to take them with me on the road and some things I ate, like some cakes, contain milk products that really bothered me. Since taking Digestive Advantage, I've discarded the Lactaid and haven't had a single problem with food or side effects. This stuff has taken away my problems to the point where I can eat a bowl of ice cream at 8:00 at night with no problem! I highly recommend you try them.

I have pretty severe lactose intolerance. I used the product as instructed for over a week. I noticed almost no positive effect. Perhaps I should have used it longer, or perhaps my intolerance is stronger than average. The package does say that some people need two tablets per day. But I decided not to go that route and am back to my chewable Lactaid tablets (and avoiding dairy most of the time).

      lactose intolerant other brands you have to take with each dairy product you eat. This brand is one first thing in morning and last all day, so one a day compared to many a day.

              This is much better than taking a pill with EVERY lactose food ingestion. Don't need t6o carry around spare pills, worry about forgetting to take, and easier to keep track of supply. Honestly, I cannot recommend this enough.

                Like most people who aren't Northern European, I became lactose intolerant as an adult. This completely deals with the problem, and is particularly easy to use. I take one on an empty stomach first thing in the morning, and then try to have a small amount of dairy with breakfast. That can be a bit of cheese, yogurt on cereal, or a couple of tablespoons of milk; just something with a little lactose for the bacteria to digest. Then I don't have to worry about eating dairy during the day, which makes it very convenient.

                    This is a daily product, allowing the medication to build in your system. If you do miss a daily dose, don't fret! There should be ample already in you to provide coverage till the next day.

                    This is a great product for someone who is lactose intolerant, and has intestinal distress upon eating dairy. This enzyme supplement does exactly that: it supplements the lactase enzyme in one's system, or replaces the lactase enzyme if one doesn't actually have that. This allows the body to process the lactose into lactase,

                    It's really easy: take one pill in the morning with your breakfast, and once there's a couple of days built up in your system, you should be able to start eating limited dairy with minimal side effects like gas/bloating/pain. Depending on how severe your symptoms are, you may not see 100% relief, but the relief should be enough to tolerate eating limited quantities of dairy. Only you can judge how much relief you need.

                        I just purchased this product three days ago and I am amazed, this actually works. I seen the negative review of this product I don't know what went wrong with them, but maybe they need to start with eating a healthy diet altogether. I eat a very healthy diet but enjoy yogurt and I like protein shakes after my workout, which the other products on the market barely helped me with. This worked for me from DAY ONE. I took it first thing in the morning,it lasted all day, I even had a protein shake for breakfast a little while later and no problem, from DAY ONE. Even later that day I had yogurt, no problems. I originally purchased it from CVS , I went back and purchased the last two packs on the shelf. I do see the this website sell it for two dollars cheaper, I will be purchasing this from drugstore.com from now on, with the rest of the products I have a hard time finding in the other drugstores. I am happy.

                          This is a fantastic product for those who are lactose intolerant. It's a lactase enzyme supplement, but does NOT cure lactose intolerance.

                          You need to be consistent about taking this, as the build up in your system will decrease each day you don't have this in your system. This is intended for daily use, once, to maintain the lactase balance in your gut. It is NOT for immediate, acute relief of symptoms, so bear that in mind.

                          My daughter and I have been taking this since it showed up on the market in 2003; we have had no side effects, but have seen wonderful results in dealing with our LI. I highly recommend taking this if you have received a medical diagnosis of LI- ALWAYS check with your doctor first before taking any OTC meds to make sure they are safe for you, and don't interact with any prescriptions you may be taking.

                            Since my 8 year old daughter was diagnosed as lactose intolerant she had been using the chewable Lactase Enzyme tablet beforehand if she ate dairy, which was not often. At first it worked well. But then she started to complain often that her stomach hurt. Her pediatrician switched her to Digestive Advantage about a month ago. She takes it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. After a few days she was feeling great. My daughter prefers it mixed with apple sauce, however she can swallow the capsule. She can even eat ice cream, her favorite, with no upset. She is a very happy camper!

                             – When your digestive system becomes out of balance, your entire body can suffer. Schiff Digestive Advantage Lactose Defense Formula Capsules are formulated to help promote a healthy and balanced digestive system.

                            Support for Lactose Intolerance



                            Schiff Digestive Advantage Lactose Defense Formula Capsules contain a complete digestive health formula that includes lactase. This enzyme is needed to properly digest a sugar in dairy products known as lactose. For people with lactose intolerance, lactase has the potential to help people address common digestive issues. See your doctor if you think you might be lactose intolerant and ask if this type of supplement is a good choice for you.

                            Probiotics for a Balanced Digestive System



                            In addition to lactase, Schiff Digestive Advantage Lactose Defense Formula Capsules contain BC30, a strain of good bacteria that may help promote healthy digestion.

                            A Product from a Leading Wellness Brand



                            Schiff is a well-known name in dietary supplements, and the brand's products are frequently recommended by medical professionals. Schiff supplements are manufactured by Reckitt Benckiser, a pharmaceutical and personal care company with over a century of experience at delivering high quality, safe products for men, women and children.
