Lactaid Drops Fro MilkLactaid Drops
Lactaid drops are enzyme supplements used for digestion of milk and other dairy products, recommended to those who are unable to digest milk and other dairy products (lactose products). All milk products contain lactose in a sugar form. The enzyme lactase is produced by your body to break down lactose. When the body produces a low amount of lactase enzyme, lactose intolerance occurs. Lactose intolerance can be experienced at different ages.
Usually, infants are not affected, but lactose intolerance can be seen in young children of 2 years of age and is very common in adults. The ultimate treatment is to avoid milk products, but it will result in lacking essential vitamins and nutrients including calcium, vitamin D, protein, and riboflavin. Using Lactaid drops with milk products as directed can help in preventing abdominal bloating, cramping, upset stomach, gas, and diarrhea caused by milk products.
What do Lactaid drops do? Lactose is hydrolyzed by lactase to monosaccharide in the form of glucose, galactose etc. which are systematically absorbed by uptake of a carrier known as sodium-dependent glucose carrier. Sometimes this carrier results in severe diarrhea following carbohydrate intake.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
