I think I have developed a lactose intolerance from the AC chemo I have taken. Anyone else out there experience this? If so, did it go away once the chemo was out of your system? Thanks for any info. you can provide! Peg

    Yes, I became unable to drink milk during AC. I went out and got "Lactaid" and that did help a lot and was able to use that in cereal, instant breakfast,etc. but I couldn't drink it straight. Once I stopped AC, and went to Taxol, I didn't have a problem. Also, I couldn't drink coffee while on AC (couldn't stand anything with a strong smell.) Incidentally, my doc suggested I drink gatorade for hydration, but the thought of drinking something red reminded me of the adriamycin! (so I eventually found orange gatorade..)
    Good luck!
