hi everyone...

Just wondering if anyone knows a brand of ibuprofen that is gluten free.
We have a bottle from Jewel/Osco that is their store brand. I called to see if it was gluten free & they couldn't tell me because I didn't still have the box with the UPC...they said that some lots are made with gluten & some aren't & that they can't tell by the lot # on the bottle, that they need the UPC.
Before I go buy another bottle & have to call & wait 48 hours to see if that batch is gluten free, can anyone tell me a brand name that is safe all the time?

Thanks!!

I've never actually checked into it, but I have taken the Costco brand by the handful and never had a problem.

Ditto for Costco as well as Equate (Wal-Mart), CVS, and BJ's.

I know this is an old thread, but: my 16 yr old daughter is gluten and sugar free. Also severe migraine sufferer. Ibuprofen is all that works, but reading ingredients makes me wonder about all ibuprofens -- she not only needs the gluten free kinds, but nothing with any polydextrose or other sugar based ingredients. Does anyone have any further information on this? or on other gluten free OTC meds?

Thanks!

Hello!

I have celiac's and have been suffering from daily migraines for a long time. I take a butterber supplement and it is a miracle plant! I haven't had a migraine in the 6 months I have been on it, and it is gluten free.

Hope this helps!

Do you mind posting the Brand Name of the Butterbur Supplement and how much you take to manage your migraines?

I can't take Ibuprofen due to Salicylate intolerance.

I have menstrual migraines and wondered it this Butterbur might work for that?
Do you know? Thank you.
