Can anyone identify some brands of gluten-free aspirin for me?

Thanks,
Deb

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

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.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

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.

Diagnosed by biopsy and Gluten-Free since March 2003. I have the noisiest stomach known to man. Seriously, how do I turn off this crazy thing??? Sounds like I've got an alien in there...
