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).

    I take one tablet each day, and never worry about what I can or can't eat. When using this medication, I have no symptoms of lactose intolerance. I am over 75 years old and have been taking this daily for about 5 years.

          It is a true blessing to take this product once daily, and never worry about the effects of eating dairy products. I don't even have to think about being careful what I eat or whether or not I need to take a pill.

            This product works very well for lactose intolerance. You only need to take it once a day. Of course, you cannot overdose on ice cream, but you can have a little and not be bothered by it.

              Having lactose intolerance so long I was thrilled when I discovered Schiff digestive lactaid tablets. I always had to make sure to remember to take other dairy products before I ate anything with dairy in it. Now that I can take this product once a day it makes it more enjoyble to dine especially when eating out. I remember once ordering in a restaurant a meal which included dairy and when I searched in my purse for the dairy chewables I forgot to put them in. Had to cancel the order. That cannot happen anymore. I honestly will use this product everyday and enjoy my meals.

                The most convenient treatment I can think of for lactose intolerance, rather than having to pop a bunch of pills every time you take a bite of dairy. I'd start off with two a day until it's gotten into your system, then one in the morning is fine.

                It used to work great. I took it for nearly a year. My doctor used to prescribe it to all his patients, but he has changed his mind. The old instructions said to take it every morning and it would work all day, which it did. Perhaps they changed the ingredients because my doctor says that every patient to whom he has prescribed it lately comes back to complain that it does not work. I notice that the new instructions state to take it when you consume dairy. This makes it no different that all the other similar products. It is cheap so I would still recommend it.

                It seemed to be working at first, then I had some terrible gas and bloating after trying this product for the first time. I usually take a regular Digestive Advantage, but thought I might try the lactose defense version to see if it would help, but I think I'm just better off avoiding dairy products altogether. Maybe you have to take it regularly to get used to it.

                  Because my lactose intolerance is severe, I take 2 capsules a day. I'd tried everything on the market -Lactaid, etc. - to almost no effect. This is a total success. I can eat/drink anything in any amount except for sauces, such as caramel, made with dry milk - then I take one extra. No side effects whatsoever; it's just an enzyme replacement.I've been using it for more than 5 years.

                  Schiff Digestive Advantage Lactose Defense Formula, Capsules

                   – 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.
