Panadol Paracetamol Starch In It?
0

7 posts in this topic

I seem to be very sensitive to starch and i think there might be something in the paracetamol i am taking. The lady at the pharmacy said they use starch to bulk up the tablet. I am waiting to hear back from the company but i thought i would ask if any of you have problems with paracetamol.

i seem to be highly sensitive to starch but it may be something else.

It could be safe but it also could not be. If you could give us the name of the company that makes it that may help but if it is a generic they can change the starch used at any time so each time you purchase it you need to check. If you seem to be having a gluten reaction I would stop taking it until you find out.

This drug is known as acetaminophen in the US the link can't tell you if it is gluten free or not but it is useful info to read through if you are taking the drug.

I have just rang the company and Paracetamol has corn starch in it. For those who react to corn could you tell me if this amount would effect you?

Each tablet has 71.4mg per 650mg tablet

yesterday morning i reacted to something, not a bad reaction but still a reaction. I am on an elimination diet and only ate 2 things yesterday which i know to be fine. I took 4 panadols yesterday instead of my usual 2. So i thought it has to be the paracetamol, so i rang the company and to my surprise I found it has corn in it.

For those of you who have corn intolerance's would you have trouble with this amount?

I have trouble with corn but i am not sure how much corn can effect people.

Thanks :-)

I take Panadol because I can't take anti-inflammatories of any kind. I have problems with corn in US but not in NZ. I have not had any corn issues with Panadol and when I was in the midst of an arthritis flare was taking six per day for two or three months, for whatever that is worth.

thanks mushroom, how sensitive are you to corn? I do react to New Zealand corn, badly. Its is almost as bad as i react to pototates (potatoes are really really bad).

My arthritis seems to have gone with the gluten. But i do find potatoes makes my thumbs ache a little not as bad as gluten though!!

Thanks. :-)

Not as sensitive as to gluten. Bloating, gas, passing out if I eat too much corn, but that was before I knew. Now I can get away with a little, Garden of Eatin Corn Chips, one or two, and I have to admit I don't worry too much if corn is a very secondary ingredient. I am glad your arthritis went with the gluten :) I am not sure if my arthritis flare was caused by gluten or not; it came after my gluten-eating sister had visited, and also after I began taking a med that had gluten in it, but it lasted such a long time.... and I thought it was just a bad reaction to the med because I was expecting it until I realized that I felt like I had been glutened so I took the med for several days.

    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Following my official diagnosis of celiac disease I went gluten free many weeks ago, but I have noticed absolutely no improvement in my health since.  I still get a plethora of muscle aches and pains almost constantly, I still feel tired, I still get lots of headaches and I still feel very foggy.  Is this normal? I see health sites suggesting some symptoms go within a few days of the diet while others take a bit longer but I have had no improvement whatsoever.  Thanks
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      According to endoscopy report, i'm parasites free. but i have high IgG to candida albican, which may indicate recent or current infection with it. i spoke with my doctor, his reply was like forget about candida or SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth, they only appear in immunocompromised patients! 
    • Italian pasta
      Hi! You will have no problems to eat safe in Italy! Food labeling is much better in Europe  (you can fully rely on labels, they list everything). The only wheat celiacs can have is gluten free wheat starch, used in Schär products and many swedish ones. As italian cuisine is based on pasta and bread, there are a lot of gluten free options, most restaurants are aware of celiacs. All kids age 6 in Italy are screened for celiac. You will find lots of options on glutenfreeroads.com   Enjoy your trip!!
    • Continued Symptoms
      Since she is back on the charts her doctor is generally pleased with her condition. I don't know that I've made it clear enough how persistent and ongoing some of this is for her. She improved so dramatically when we made her gluten free, but there are these couple of nagging issues. I'm beginning to wonder if she has some other food sensitivity... Regarding the speech - we homeschool, will the public schools evaluate her anyway?
    • Italian pasta
      My wife and I are traveling to Italy in October and will be eating authentic food over there obviously. I'm extremely sensitive to gluten and extremely celiac. I have heard rumors that people that are celiac don't have the reaction to the wheat pasta in Italy due to the processing of the wheat is different than that of the states. I am curious how much truth to this there is and if anyone has had any experience with this issue or recommendations as to what to avoid. I've never been outside the states and am fearful that I won't be able to eat over there haha

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
