Depends: ...on what your symptoms of your intolerance are. Garlic causes acid reflux in many people, and without reflux medication, this cannot be controlled well. However, you might consider trying to roast the garlic before using it. Some people are able to tolerate roasted garlic but not fresh garlic. Good luck.
