I heard about Sulmedol and after much consideration, I tried it. I was told by a gastroenterologist that I was lactose-intolerant, even though he did not do any tests to confirm his diagnosis. Another doctor told me that lactose intolerance is "fashionable these days".Are flatulence and diarhea also "fashionable"? So after spending a lot of money on lactose enzymes to try and counteract my lactose problems I saw Sulmedol and I thought, "why not?" I was very careful not to use any dairy products for 4 weeks, as they suggest on the label - and this was harder than you'd think because dairy products are in so many food items, like whey in gluten-free breads, and of course butter in pretty much everything. I used the Sulmedol as directed, twice daily. The big day came when I bravely added a small amount of coffee cream to my coffee. Soon after, the gas started, and then the frequent bowel movements. So unfortunately, Sulmedol did not work for me. I wish it had. I love cheese of all kinds, so I'm back to lactose enzyme pills. Boo, hiss!
