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.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
