Here is a quote from Cepacol's website so I would take them....... and feel better!!! :)

"Cepacol® Lozenges and Cepacol® Sprays contain no gluten, wheat, or grain"

Hope this helps.

Since I see you're on theCanadian border, candian Fisherman's Friends are gluten-free and work very well.

I've always loved any kind of cherry-flavored hard candy (cough drop or not), but what is probably more effective (though not as tasty) is to do hot salt water gargles (I kid you not, they're amazingly effective) and drink as much as you possibly can. I know, I know, it'll mean that you'll have to pee almost constantly, but, like I tell my kids, you'll be peeing out all the germs (drown those suckers!). For sore throats, there are several brands of licorice tea that have no caffeine and are VERY soothing to a scratchy throat.

Hope you feel better soon!

Also, Hall's Sugar Free varieties of Black Cherry, Strawberry, Honey-Lemon, and I think the rest of their sugar free varieties are gluten free--any of their sugar-containing cough drops are not gluten free (even though they look like it when you read the ingredients because the way or the place that they process their glucose has high contamination risks.

And for those that prefer the all-natural approach...I like Thayer's Slippery Elm Lozenges (cherry). They work well for me.

Me too! I didn't think that they contained gluten ( I spoke to a rep from Hall's who told be that they were gluten-free), so I took one and within 30 minutes, I was so sick that I thought I was going to die. It was awful.

I was using them non-stop for like 2 weeks, and then missed 3 weeks of school because i got so sick from them and was throwing up every 10 minutes.

DON"T ever take them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, I just picked up the Hall Fruit Breezers, the ingredients look okay, but it does say flavors. Thanks flagbabyds, that was a close one!

There is a great tea called "Throat Coat" which singers use. It is gluten-free and really soothing. It's made by "Traditional Medicinals" and I buy it at the grociery store.

Another great throat-soother is to combine a little honey and fresh squeezed lemon juice, warm a bit and take by the spoonful as you need it. :)

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
