I think it stinks even more when you've done it to yourself! I usually buy the Target brand antacid tablets and have never had a problem. I went to Wal Mart the other day out and I wasnt sure about some of the ingredients in the WM brand antacids. I bought a BIG BOX of Rolaids Softchews.

For the last 3 days, I thought I had the flu: extreme fatigue, D, etc. When I woke up for the millionth time to go to the bathroom, it dawned on me. Did a quick search of this site, and the Rolaids have gluten! I just called the 800 number, and the issue is CC. I usually am not that sensitive, so it must be some huge CC :( Uggg!

I've used the regular hard tablets for years with no problem. What exactly did the person at the 800 number say?

They said the regular Rolaids are gluten free. The Softchews are made on shared lines.

Wanted to clarify that. Your first post did mention that you got the soft chews but didn't make it clear that the regulars were gluten-free. I wonder what the soft chews would share a line with.

I have no idea, I didn't think to ask. This is the first time I've had a reaction like this from CC. Usually it's just a little heartburn, but man did I get hit this time! Iguess it's true that you react more as more time goes by. Prediagnosis, I always had C, never D. It's finally stopped, thank goodness. I thought I was going to have to live in the bathroom :blink:

Don't beat yourself up too much. Your body is already doing enough of that on its own. Feel better.
