Excedrin?
0

5 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm new here and I was wondering if anyone else heard that Excedrin was not going to be gluten free much longer? I can't remember now where I found this information ( I thought it was on clan thompson), but I'm sure that it said that Excedrin was now going to use wheat as an ingredient. Any answers would help, I use Excedrin for my migraines and would hate if I couldn't anymore! Thanks!

Here's the most recent info that ClanThompson sent on January 12, 2007:

"In a follow-up call to Bristol Myers Squibb today, we spoke with a

supervisor concerning information we were given about a re-formulation of

Bristol Myers Squibb over the counter products. The supervisor says we

were given incorrect information yesterday. NO BRISTOL MYERS SQUIBBS

PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN REFORMULATED TO CONTAIN WHEAT.

ALL OVER THE COUNTER BRISTOL MYERS SQUIBBS PRODUCTS ARE GLUTEN FREE

except for Keri Lotion.

The supervisor does not know why the representative we talked to

yesterday told us certain products had been reformulated but she will give

the representative in question some additional training so this problem

will not happen again - hopefully.

We are sorry for any confusion this gluten alert may have caused.

Best wishes,

Lani K. Thompson

Thank you Jukie. I do not know what I would do without my Extra Strength Excedrin!!!!! Most Tylenols are gluten-free, as is Aleve, and Advil.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
