As we all well know by now, drug manufacturers are notoriously bad about labeling their products...
Anyway, I was prescribed Medrol today which was filled in generic form called Methylprednisolone manufactured by Cadista Pharmaceuticals. The patient prescribing information shows two types of unidentified starch as inactive ingredients: pregelatinized starch and sodium starch glycolate.
I called the medical specialist at Cadista today, 12/12/2009, and got the following information:
The product is gluten free as the pregelatinized starch is corn based and the sodium starch glycolate is potato based.
Hope this helps someone else avoid the runaround I just went through!
Medrol / Methylprednisolone By Caldista Is Gluten Free
