Generess Fe Birth Control?

2 posts in this topic

I've been on Generess fe birth control pills for almost a year now. 


I'm probably just paranoid but I'm worried that it might have some kind of gluten filler or something in it?


Does anyone know if it does or if birth control pills have it in general?

I usually look here:

any time I am getting prescription or non-prescription drugs.  


I have found a couple that I feel safe with, and another that I called about but they didn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling.  I have used Junel Fe, and Microgestin with no issues.  The one that I called and wasn't sure of began with a "G", but I don't have the label in front of me to say if it was the brand you are using or not.  I can't say that they have gluten in them, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.


My pharmacy has been really good with the gluten-free stuff, and has always gotten me one of the two that I listed above.  


Good luck!
