Don't make the mistake I made. I thought anything my GI prescribed for me would be okay since it was coming from him, but my GI prescribed Lomotil for the diarrhea and sure enough, after a major reaction, I checked on the list and it contained gluten!!!
Have a great day!
positive bloodwork, positive biopsy
Celiac, collagenous colitis, hypothyroidism
endometriosis (at age 20)
spinal stenosis (early 20's)
Biopsy August 2006 confirmed complete villous atrophy despite being gluten-free for years and bloodwork within range showing compliance with diet. Doctor has confirmed diagnosis of Refractory Celiac Sprue.
Endoscopy also showed numerous stomach ulcers, have started taking Losec.

Have you checked to make sure they are gluten-free on www.glutenfreedrugs.com

Thank you so much for your suggestions. When you mentioned that Lomotil isn't gluten-free I discontinued it and when you mentioned it here again, I thought I'd better check the Prilosec OTC that I take-OPPS! It's not on the list either! Thanks again, Granny
