Is Lipitor gluten-free?
0

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.
