Milk intolerant & been given medicine with Lactose in - should I take it

I am on hold to the pharmacy but they may not be taking calls until after 11

I have several dietary intolerances (currently on FODMAP exclusion diet) & the consultant has given me Dicycloverine Hydrochloride which contain Lastose

Should I take them or not? Do they come in a non lactose version?

Which part of the milk are you intolerant to? Are you lactose intolerant or is it the milk protein?

I'm not sure if anything is different in adults but my DS is milk protein intolerant, not lactose intolerant.

Most tablets will have lactose in as its used as a binding agent and filler

Apparently it's not worth checking the allergies/intolerances I have as they are only inconvenient sad

I know it's in lots but the more I avoid the better I am

They do a syrup without the Lactose in
