i was surprised at the response from Mucinex because i read on this board their products are gluten free. i actually started taking their meds on Friday evening and haven't had a problem. i guess it's just a CYA statement.

Anyway, I caught a cold and started taking Mucinex from the new box... and am now distinctly getting a reaction. Fortunately, I can combat it a bit with an anti-histamine, but of possible things to have suddenly switch to the dark side, extended-time release medicines are not my favorite pick.
I'm happy to hear the walmart brand still calls itself gluten-free, mucinex has been handy and I'd hate to have to abandon it entirely.
