Gluten Free Medications

Hi everybody, I desperately need help. Does anyone know of any antibiotics that are gluten free. I had a root canal done on Wednesday, and I have an infection. The dentist describe clindamycin but it states on the company website that if you have any gastro. problems you should not take it. Any help would be much appreciated thank you.

According to this first list it is gluten-free. But I would still contact the manufacturer to find out why the don't recommend using it for people with gastro diseases. Even gluten-free it might not be the best choice. I posted two lists and their websites, so you might be able to get your dentist to order you another kind. I hope you feel better soon.

God bless,

In addition to celiac disease, I have hypothyroidism. Does anyone know if the various thyroid medications, particularly Armour Thyroid and the generic Qualitest Thyroid are gluten-free?

I found this description below for Armour thyroid, but Qualitest seems a sketchy organization at best--their thyroid medicine was recalled last summer for faulty expiration dates.

I just thought that I would add my 2 cents worth. ;) Do you have a good pharmacist? I take about 12 prescription medications a month (14-20 pills a day), and I have learned to take advantage of any help that is available. My pharmacist has listed my gluten-intolerance under the "allergy" section in his computer- that way, when he goes to fill a new prescription for me, a reminder pops up on his screen that he needs to call the pharmaceutical company and make sure the medication is gluten-free. I still look up over-the-counter meds. myself, but I figure, with the price I pay for my prescription meds., this should be a service that he is willing to provide. Just my thoughts...hope it's helpful. -Julie B)

I asked at my local walgreens and the pharmacist didn't know of any such list. Oh well, I guess you have a special walgreens where you are.
