Is Lipitor gluten-free?

7 posts in this topic

Diagnosed celiac on jan. 14, working very hard on this gluten-free diet thing. I'm sure I getting hidden gluten just from lack of knowledge as this point. According to my gluten-free Bible book(2005 edition), Lipitor has gluten in it. I have been on Lipitor for 15 years, does anyone know how to find out how much gluten am I injesting with my 40mg daily dose of Lipitor? I'm fairly symptom free, is this minisule amount damaging my intestines without symptoms?? My primary DR.(who prescribes the Lipitor) pretends to know all about celiac, I'm not so sure about that, which is why I skipped the gatekeeper and went straight to the GI at the beginning of Jan. Can I just say, "I want real Pizza so very badly" :(

This site, maintained by a pharmacist, states that it is gluten free http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/list.htm

Ingredients: http://www.rxlist.com/lipitor-drug.htm

You could try contacting the manufacturer or asking your pharmacist for help, as well.

There are a few chains that do gluten free pizzas, including Uno's. :D

Lipitor is gluten-free as of when I last checked. If it weren't, I think I would have noticed--I have been taking it daily for about three years.

I can't help with the lipitor question but I might be able to help with the pizza. Try the Gluten Free Pantry's French Bread Mix for the dough. They give the directions to make pizza dough on the back. I usually put it in the fridge for a bit to make it easier to spread and then oil the large spoon that I spread it with. It will make a deep dish pizza crust that is so good you may cry the first time you eat it. Kinnickkinnick makes some decent premade crusts also but the GFP crust is so good even gluten eaters will happily consume it.

Will add my two cents worth. I was also told by my pharmacist, who checked for me, that Lipitor is indeed gluten-free. I have taken it for many years and it causes me no problems.

Thanks to those responsible for the heads up on gluten-free pizza crust. I think pizza is probably right up there as one of the things we all miss most here.

Thanks for the positive info/news on lipitor. One less thing I need to stress about. I can't wait to try the Pizza dough and the pizza at Uno's. I tried the Whole Foods gluten-free bakery pizza crust...rather not eat it again.

I love this board, I'm starting to feel better about things, you all are the best!! :D Thanks

Lipitor IS gluten-free. When that "Bible" book came out I read the author's statement about Lipitor and panicked! Called the manufacturer (Pfizer, I believe), spoke to several people including, finally, their head person, all of whom verified the gluten-free status. That's one serious misstatement by Jax Peters Lowell in her "Bible" book.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.

      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Hi CeliacMommaX2, 'Yes, you must treat oats like wheat in a situation where gluten free oats cause the same response. I would also not use pots or pans for your daughter, that you have cooked oats in, as there is always a chance that there are traces left in the pans after washing up.  It's better safe than sorry.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
