Hi, rather than taking the lactaid as needed I am trying the 1 per day Digestive Advantage as Pb4 suggested.  I was wondering how long it took you to notice a difference and if you take 1 per day or 2 per day.  The box and the pharmacist said to take 2 per day the first two days and then 1 per day there after.  But, the box also says that some people may require two pills per day.  Typically when I took the lactaid I took two pills at a time. One would help but I would still get gassy.  Just wondering what you all find to work best.  Im still nervous about having dairy and I plan on just having a little at a time until I get more brave.

Actually it's the primadophilus reuteri made by natures way that I take which aids with lactose intolerance very well, as I had it quite severely...I don't care for the digestive advantage after googling their ingredients, I found it has too many un-necessary additives and sugar alcohol in it.

Hi Fitzy is me that takes the Digestive Advantage LI. I took the two the first few days as instructed and now only take one per day They work well for me. I also take other probiotics at night , but the Digestive Advantage helps alot with the lactose intolerance.
