I use Costco's brand-Kirkland Allergy Aller-Tec. It is gluten free. But if you do not have a Costco, my 2011/2012 Gluten Free shopping guide states that Walgreens offers the following gluten-free allergy meds., but I would check in case formulas have changed:Allergy Multi Symptom (Day/Night Caplet combo pack, Day Caplets, Day Quick Gels, Night caplets) and Allergy Sinus Decongestant Caplets.

A few months ago I had a bottle of Target's allergy caps, and I called and they were gluten-free, but I can't remember the name. It was their version of Zyrtec. Hope this helps.

Allegra has just been released as over the counter and was gluten free last time I checked. The site glutenfreedrugs.com has a good list of medications, including one for Walgreens that lists their store brands. Claritin is also gluten free.

I remember calling the manufacturer of zyrtec a few months ago and a woman there told me it was gluten free. Did I get misinformation? Luckily I have not taken it. At our local Walgreens all Walgreens brand cold and sinus meds as well as aspirins are labeled Gluten Free with little green tags so It makes it so easy I buy them. The are carrying some gluten-free snacks now too.

glutenfreedrugs.com says that Zyrtec is gluten free. That site is maintained by a pharmacist and is updated regularly. There's a lot of old info floating around cyberspace, so you have to take that into consideration when doing your research.
