Hi Donna, yes it is, it is just another sugar and a useful binding agent. Finding Lactose free medication may be quite a challenge but it is not really present in sufficient quantities to affect lactose intolerant people I would have thought.
Yes it is and it can affect you if you are lactose intolerant. When I had meningitis they had to fine lacto free drugs as my body was fighting enough without having to deal with intolerances.
At present I’m taking naproxen for knee replacement which I have found lactose in them. This is causing me to produce mucous in my nose and throat mostly and the longer I take the worse it gets. It’s not life threatening for me and it’s best to try and find lactose free if you can. Hope this helps
