Thanks for the website. That will make it easy to check other medication. I did not, however, see the list of drugs that are not gluten-free. Can you post a link to that?

The list has Benadryl elixir, but does not list the caplets. The ingredients list on the caplets box has "starch". Before I call the company to ask about gluten free status, has anyone confirmed whether this product is gluten free or not?

Thanks,
Michelle

I too am curious to know if the gel caps are gluten free. Anyone here knows by any chance?

I wonder the same thing... i know on the American list I seen that it is safe, but I'm always nervous about taking it here in Canada because I'm not sure. Does anyone know if its 100% safe in Canada?

I took the liquid benedryl yesterday and didn't have any reaction, in fact I took it as an article had said that anti histimaines might help with glutening and I'd been glutened the day b4, it did help somewhat :)

I'm in Canada as well.

Enterolab:
Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA 11 Units (Normal Range <10 Units)
Fecal Anti-tissue Transglutaminase IgA 18 Units (Normal Range <10 Units)
Quantitative Microscopic Fecal Fat Score <300 Units (Normal Range <300 Units)
Fecal Anti-casein (cow’s milk) IgA 9 Units (Normal Range <10 Units)
Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 1,1 (Subtype 5,5)
(this makes sense, my mother had MS)


What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Bendadryl depends on the form. When in doubt, call the company. They are really nice about it. Personally I would avoid the gel caps and the majority of the companies I have called have said that gel caps are not gluten free. The caplet forms tend to be the safest.
