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.

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!

    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
