Unlikely cause of sx: There are certainly other BP meds. However, the tiny amount of any lactose in any such drug is not enough to make anyone with simple lactose intolerance feel bad. Lactose intolerance is not an allergic reaction like to a bee sting or foods. It occurs when you can't digest the lactose & gut germs do, producing gas. Tiny amounts don't matter at all.
