Sudafed

I had been under the impression that I could only take the original, not the generic, store brands. However, pharmacies in town are no longer able to get Sudafed brand of the little red pills! Allergy season is in full swing here, and I am trying to figure out what to take instead of the original.

The majority of medicines, both brand name and generic, are gluten-free. You (or your pharmacist) should be able to confirm the status by calling the manufacturer (or the store for a private label).

Be careful how the question is asked. "Is this product gluten-free?" may get a "No" answer for legal rather than factual reasons.

Go to the stores and write down the phone number and lot number on the genetics. Go home and call on them. I had one generic that was gluten-free but I forget which one. I think it may have been Walgreens generic if you have those stores near you. But check.

I have used many Sudaphed generics successfully: Walmart, CVS, Costco, BJs, Kroger. When I first tried each one I read the label. I've never had a problem with them. And I agree with "Moderator" all the companies DO tell you they are NOT gluten-free because they don't test for gluten and their lawyers have told them they HAVE to say that. So I no longer call companies. I read the label with Google open to search for ingredients I don't recognize. Been successful so far, for 6 year.

I use Wal-Mart brand Sudafed and have called them several times to ask about the gluten free status of a product. They simply tell me, "This product does not contain gluten ingredients" or "This product does contain gluten ingredients." Simple and easy :) I mark my boxes of medication that have been confirmed gluten free with a gluten-free with permanent marker so I remember that it's gluten free :)
