Although we are already working to make our excipients purely sucrose-based, our medicines still contain lactose. In some cases, patients who cannot tolerate this type of sugar can suffer digestive problems after taking the medicine on an empty stomach. If you have an intolerance to these substances, consult your health care professional before taking this medicine.
To give you an idea, the granules from a capsule can contain a quantity of lactose 100 times lower than the one contained in half a glass of milk. A lactose intolerant person can therefore try to take this medicine and see if they can tolerate it. If not, many prescribing doctors advise systematically delaying taking the medicine until 1 hour after meals. If you still have problems, they also advise dissolving the granules in a glass with a small amount of mineral water and then afterwards let the water remain in contact with the sublingual mucosa for as long as possible.
The granules that are used in micro-immunotherapy medicines are gluten-free, which means there is no contraindication in persons with celiac disease.
