I was looking at some posts and am a little confused on which of the Gas-X's are Gluten Free.

I read more that the Soft Gels were so I got a box today.

Gas-X Softgels Extra Stength -- Antigas - Simethicone 125mg
Active Ingredient: Simethicone 125mg
Inactive Ingredients: D&C yellow 10, FD&C blue 1, FD&C red 40, gelatin, glycerin, hypromellose, peppermint oil, purified water, sorbitol, titamium dioxide.

Thank you very much!

The best confirmation is to call the company itself. Glutenfreedrugs.com has too many errors in it. It doesn't get updated, you have to be very careful when referring to their website.

CVS Softgel Gas Relief is gluten free, as is Walmart's Equate brand.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Thanks for the replies.

I looked at the gluten free drug list earlier today but all it says is Gas-X so I would consider all are safe, but I have read in different places that some are not.
I tried to call the company the other week but the 800 line goes possibly out of the country so the connection is really bad and it sounded like the person was outside in the wind or something...very strange. My husband was nice and tried to call for me today and he told the person that the connection was bad so the guy spoke loud so he could make out what he was saying. He said that they have not been tested for gluten so there is a possibility they may have gluten in the ingredients.

Hmmmm maybe I will look at the WalMart brand next time we go there, we do not have a CVS anywhere near us. Thank you!

I have read something about Gas-X too, but can't remember what, or where.

Glutenfreedrugs.com are still listing Xanax as gluten-free, and it's not, they never took it off the list. I no longer trust that site.

Some of these companies do have their info lines out of the country. If you do get a line you can hear on, often times you can't understand the person you are talking too.

Walmart states on many of their items if it's gluten free or not.

Deb, are you positive about this?
is there a generic brand of this? Maybe that's some of the confusion I'm finding.
i was researching for a friend who uses it and also on a couple forums and celiac alert (I think) and the consensious was that it was gluten-free...........man it gets so dang confusing.
Guess she'll have to call the company.

I use the soft Gas-X the little green ones. They seem to work for me.
Think i called about them at one point.
i can't keep all this is my head anymore, esp since companies keep changing the ingredients.
thanks Deb, Judy

Yup, Pfizer is the company that said Xanax was gluten free, then later stated they never said it.

I do have a gluten-free generic brand of Xanax. I had to search and search for a gluten-free company...my Xanax (alprazolam) is from Mylan Labs...they will always disclose gluten if it's in their product.

Originally I had a generic from Greenstone Labs, which is a subsidiary of Pfizer, it contained gluten too. I was being glutened all the time, because Pfizer lied.

Thing is, glutenfreedrugs.com state that "Xanax, all forms" is gluten free, and that is a FALSE statement. I do not trust them anymore...I always call for myself. Except now, I have a gluten free pharmicist, it's wonderful!
