well, some Advils are gluten-free as are some Tylenols. I think I use the extra strength caplets from Tylenol

Thanks celiac3270. I will still be looking for other brands of gluten-free aspirin as Advil and Tylenol are both aspirin free. Your mom probably doesn't give you aspirin as yet because kids under 16 can get deathly ill or it leaves them brain damaged if they use aspirin and have a certain virus. It's called Reye's Syndrome.

Lili; Reyes syndrome is serious. Do not give children aspirin. Go to Mayo Clinic website or Web Md and look Reyes up and it'll probably tell you the full story as to what happens if child has a certain virus (and you probably wouldn't know if the child has that virus or not, so why take the chance) and has aspirin. I know a woman whose child died on her when she gave him aspirin. He was about 15 years old.

I'm afraid I don't take aspirin, just NSAIDs like ibuprofen and naproxyn sodium. Have you checked the www.glutenfreedrugs.com site. (I think that's the url, but am not positive...)

The gluten-free drug site states that Bufferin is gluten-free EXCEPT for the 325 mg size.

I wanted to know if Bayer is gluten-free. I'll have to go to grocery store & get their toll free # before I purchase it.

Hi everyone~

This topic came up at our Celiac support meeting this month and someone mentioned that Members Mark asprin (sams club brand) is gluten free. She said she called the company and they were certain they were gluten-free. You should probably make this phone call for yourself, but this may be an option.
