lactose in medications

I am looking for a Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) that does not have lactose as a binder.
Does anyone know of such a product?

It looks like there is one.  I am not a doctor and I have no idea exactly how this works.  Your best bet is to ask your doctor about it. Please be sure to come back and let us know how you are doing.

Call it pharmacy tell them. Ask them to pull out the insert that comes with the meds they keep on the shelf and read the non active ingredients.
That's how I have to do it.
But tell them these words. WHEY CASIEN OR PROPRIONATE.
I'M so allergic that even tiny amounts like that affect me.  
Don't be shy about it either. It's their job and your health.
Hope this helps
