Tylenol

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone have a problem with Tylenol? I ask because I am having a major itch fit on my thighs today, the likes of which I have not experienced since I was still eating wheat. I also woke up with more new acne this morning. The only thing I consumed yesterday that was out of the ordinary was extra-strength Tylenol caplets (I don't think I've taken an OTC painkiller more than a handful of times since I went gluten-free, actually). But I just looked Tylenol up on the web, and it is reportedly gluten-free. Maybe my body just doesn't like acetaminophen!

They say that they can't guarantee that it is gluten-free so if you are really sensitive then you shouldn't take it, I get stomach problems when I have Tylenol

No--the extra strength caplets are gluten-free

I've never reacted to Tylenol, but I have reacted badly to advil. This was before I was on the gluten-free diet.

I've never had a reaction to Tylenol or Advil. They are on my gluten-free list too but I guess some people just have different reactions to different things.

It should be gluten-free, but you could be reacting to the Tylenol itself. If so, discuss it with your doctor the next time you are in. If you're allergic to it (and that's what the reaction sounds like) you'll want to avoid it, and have it noted in your medical record.

Molly, did they tell you that it wasn't gluten-free when you called? Because I heard that the extra strength caplets were and...I think some infants kind and maybe another. Anyway, did the company tell you this or do you suspect it based on your reactions?

Yeah Tylenol has always given me their absolute guarantee that they were gluten-free on most of their products, they even sent a list, and the extra strength caplets are on it. The above reaction definitley sounds like more of an allergy than a gluten reaction.

I reacted the same way which I do with gluten when I took them. I always took the same ones (which I don't remember because I haven't used them in two years) and was probably taking one of their non-glutenfree products.

They may be glutenfree now.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
