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!!!

    • Coping with gas!?
      Hi everyone,  I hope you're all having a better Tuesday than me :P. So after nearly 2 years of knowing that I am most likely Celiac, I have narrowed down my reactions to gluten into three categories. 1. When I realize I accidently ate a significant amount of gluten. Symptoms are pretty immediate and almost identical to the stomach flu- vomiting, terrible stomach pain, body aches, lower back and knee pain, headache and stiffness, diarrhea. This will usually last about 24 hours before I can start trying to eat food again. 2. When I realize I ate a small amount of gluten (i.e. a hidden ingredient in something). The most prominent symptom here is a burning pain in my lower abdomen.  3. When I know I must have eaten something off but cannot identify it. This is usually a more mild version of 1 and 2. Mostly nausea, tiredness, stomach discomfort, and a ridiculous amount of terrible smelling gas.  Today is a number 3 day. It has felt like my stomach has been constantly churning all day. I keep on feeling like I'm finally going to poop but then it's just gas. Just like the rest of my symptoms, I have absolutely no idea what to do for this! Are there any products you guys could recommend for settling my stomach and relieving the gas? Also, if you have any suggestions for #1 and 2 I would so gladly appreciate it! Doctors have been thoroughly unhelpful with symptom relief. "Just don't eat gluten" is their suggestion. If only they knew how it feels to get glutened... Thanks guys! Kristen 
    • Gluten ataxia?
      I have Celiac Disease and Diabetes.  Sounds to me like you're experiencing a low blood sugar episode.  Did anyone test your blood glucose level during your hospital visit?   When I get low, I get the drunk-wonky vision, too.  After going gluten-free, I found I had to eat more often to avoid those crashes.  I sometimes wake to a crash just like you did.  Have honey or other sweet next to bedside just in case.  If you get too low you will pass out. Low cost blood glucose meters are available at drug stores.  I suggest you get one just to rule low blood sugar out.    Many blessings
    • Celiac - Not yet diagnosed but feel like I'm dying.
      Hi Dylan I just wanted to join SLLRunner in welcoming you to the forum and yes, do ask to be tested for Celiac and Chrons. My nutritionalist told me that celiac disease is a great mimicker of many illnesses which I think must make a doctor's job all the harder when it comes to diagnosis.  For many of us it took us  a long time to get a diagnosis - for about eight years before my own diagnosis I had ulcers,  odd migraines and hallucinations on waking, anxiety, elevated blood protein but no obvious cause for it, anemia, numb hands and arms in the mornings, and eventually the abdominal pain and severe diarrhea. It was all scary stuff but  it was only when I got the last two symptoms, for six weeks, that I was tested for celiac disease (for the protocol here in the UK is that if you have a new gastric symptom for more than six weeks you should have further investigations).  I still wonder if I hadn't had that gastric pain and diarrhea whether my doctors would have even thought it was celiac related? After all you have been through it is not surprising that you are feeling depressed.  A lot of people feel very depressed and anxious before their diagnosis.  You are doing the right thing seeing a new doctor, and hopefully you are just around the corner from getting some long awaited answers.   Keep us posted.  You will find  some great advice here and support during your journey.  All the very best.

      This forum post came up when I Google searched Kirkland Dish Soap. I called them today and they said there is no gluten in the dish soap. Janis 
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
