Gluten-free Pain Relievers
0

11 posts in this topic

Wondering if anyone could remind me (I'm sure it has come up before) if Tylenol or Advil are gluten-free? And if there are other pain relievers that might be?

Thank you.

Hi Lisa :D

The two that I use are Tylenol Extra Strength Caplets and Extra Strength Bufferin. (the regular-strength Bufferin was not safe the last time I checked)

I don't know about Advil, it upsets my stomach.

Thank you Patty and Lisa.

p.s. Do you drink V-8 juice? Wondering if that's okay for Lisa.

Thanks again

Hi Michael,

V-8 is gluten free, but I sure would not want to drink it if I had the flu. It would be a little bit heavy. Try some clear liquids such as 7-up, apple juice, ginger ale. All Gatorades are gluten free and so is Propel water.

We wish Lisa a speedy recovery.

i called Wyeth in January, and they confirmed that all Advil pain relievers are gluten free (also Advil Cold & Sinus). i play competitive volleyball and take Advil regularly only when I am playing to keep my ailing shoulder from tightening up.... and i've never had a problem.

I wanted to add--I'm just getting over the flu, and one of the worst parts for me was the cough which seems to be hanging around forever. I used Robitussin Honey Lemon Cough Drops and Robitussin DM Cough Syrup.

I'm not a fan of cold meds normally, but it became necessary to be able to sleep.

Just in case ;)

im scared of the corn starch thats in all of these products as corn gluten acts just as wheat barley or rye gluten forms do...does anyone know of any otc or RX pain relievers that are also freeof corn?

This is an almost 5 year old thread, any product info may be outdated.

Corn is not part of the gluten that Celiacs must avoid. Some people, with Celiac and without, might have a problem with corn, just as they could have a problem with soy or rice or strawberries...

Mark, if you can't tolerate corn, I think you can find some asperin that doesn't have corn starch, or go to your health food store and buy some willow bark capsules. I myself am highly senstive to salicylates and cannot take asperin nor Advil, nor Aleve. When my corn sensitivity was severe, I had to have Tylenol made at a compounding pharmacy. I can now tolerate corn starch. You might be able to too, as corn starch is so highly processed the protein (which is what we react to) is no longer in it. I still can't eat whole corn or cornmeal, and I haven't even THOUGHT of trying corn oil or corn syrup, but corn starch is OK. :)
