I recently got my biopsy results back (positive). In trying to remove all gluten from my home I researched my acid reflux medication.
My Ranitidine (issued by Kaiser Permenente in Denver) is a generic tablet made by TEVA. TEVA and Kaiser have told me that none of the ingredients have gluten but the machines they use process other pills that may contain gluten. They assured me that the machines were cleaned between batches of medications.
My pharmacist has consulted with a nutritionist who does not think it is a concern. My fear is that it is a concern but that Kaiser is trying to save themselves money buy only issuing generic drugs from companies they have contracts with.
If anyone has any medical evidence to contradict this advice, please let me know.
