Generic Antibiotic For Augmentin Gf?
0

8 posts in this topic

Hello,

Does anybody know off hand if the generic for "Augmentin" - Amox-clav by mfg Geneva is gluten free?

I have done searches here, on the CELIAC@MAELSTROM.STJOHNS.EDU, listserver, called the pharmicist (no help couldn't even give me a phone number for geneva) and searched online for a phone number myself for Geneva. There is a number for Sandoz (not sure if Geneva is their generic subdivision) but even if that is the number I won't be able to call till tomorrow.

This is for my daughter, I just posted yesterday asking about probiotics and if they can help while you are on antibiotics and duhhh wouldn't ya think checking to see if the meds itself is gluten-free ,to have been my first concern. Augghh, hopefully we will catch on.

:rolleyes: Anyways thanks if anybody has any info

Hey Donna,

Thanks soooo much. :D It's pretty bad when you own pharmacists does not have contact info for you, and this was Walgreens.

I googled and googled and came up with nothing for Geneva.

Thanks again.

P.S. I haven't had time yet to respond to the other thread regarding fibromyalgia, I love your post and all your insights about it!!!

I was able to verify that this is indeed gluten free (thanks again for the contact info).

Geneva has been bought by Norvatis. The representative had to verify my meds. since my batch was made by Geneva , she verified that the ingredients for this product is gluten free and will remain gluten free where it is currently being manufactured at through Norvatis.

I called Sandoz on their generic Amox-Clav generic for Augmentin. They said that there are no gluten ingredients but that they do not test for gluten so they cannot say that they are "gluten-free". Interesting change. I'm wondering if that has to do with the government getting more strict on what they can call gluten-free. If I do not repost to this topic it means I did not have a reaction! :)

Bridget.
