Is Percocet Gluten Free?
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know if the brand name of Percocet is gluten free? Or even the generic form? I'm having a hard time finding out who the manufacturer of the generic form is. Anyone know? I'm having surgery on Monday, so I just want to be prepared.

Thanks you all! :)

Hi Lisa,

here's a list you can check!

http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/

Thanks Ginny,

I did see that, but I just wondered if anyone had any recent information. Sometimes I don't trust the glutenfreedrugs.com.

Anyway, seems like I was wrong about me being hyperthyroid when I posted bout it 4 weeks ago. My endo lowered my dose, but I still was having night sweats, low grad night fevers, abdominal and back tenderness and just feeling very tried. And I was feeling so good for six months. So I went to my oncology doctor and he ordered another CT scan for my enlarged lymph nodes and they are now 1 cm bigger than they were two months ago. So now he wants to get them biopsied on Monday. It came up rather fast. I just had the CT scan done 3 days ago and I found out to day they wanted to have the surgery on Monday. I'm trying not too think about it too much. I'm not feeling good enough to try to stress about it. I just want them to figure it out. The doctors think it's either lymphoma or another autoimmune disease. Neither one sounds good to me. But if it is a lymphoma, they told me it's at it's beginning stage and it's very treatable. I'll have to post about this on another section when I get a chance and have more energy. I really wondered how many of us have been through this. Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers!

Thanks Ginny! :)

I just wanted to tell you all I did call the Endo Pharmaceutical company yesterday. They make the brand name Percocet. The rep did tell me that they don't add gluten to the product, but they couldn't confirm wither the product is made on shared lines or not and more less couldn't guarantee it's completely gluten free. A women named Marget really gave me a hard time. It was like pulling teeth for the information. I called early Friday morning and she said she was going to call me back, but never did. So I called them again and they told me they won't be able to give me that information until Monday -well Monday I'm having surgery and that's too late. I couldn't believe they didn't have this information in their system. Then they told me I should have called earlier to do more research. Well- I didn't know I was going to have surgery on Monday until Thursday evening, so how could've I called any earlier??? Sorry, I just have to vent... I'm just so fustrated... :ph34r: And I even called my pharmacy to find out about their generic brands and the rep told them that they could be CC because they are made on the same lines with gluten. I really don't do well on any other pain pills and Percocet was always the one that worked for me so it looks like I'm stuck with it even though there may be a chance of CC. :( What the heck is wrong with these companies???? I guess my plan is now to just take the brand name Percocet and if I have reactions I'll have to stop them and call my doctor for something else or just take plain old Motrin... I'm such a baby... I don't like pain.... :(

Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks everyone!

I have been on percocet and Oxycontin for years and have not had any problem with gluten ...I have always had the generic percocet and both name and generic oxi ...I checked with the pharmacist and the said it was gluten free but there is no way to guarantee CC ..I think you should call the Pharmaceutical company and file a complaint with the manager about the lack of compassion their customer service reps showed you ..That is just not acceptable ...I wish you the best and you will be fine ...How could you not be with your whole celiac family praying for you ? :)

HI BillyJ,

Thanks so much! You are so kind! :) Do you know the name of the company that your pharmacy uses for the generic Percocet that you used? I heard there are quite a few. I called my pharmacy and the company they use is Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. The pharmacy said they called them and the rep told them that they don't put gluten in there percocet, but they are made on the same lines that gluten products are made on. I'm very sensitive and I know I would probably have a reaction to them since I can't eat anything made on shared lines. Does that company sound familiar to you or is your from a differnet company?

Thanks so much for all your help!!!

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
