So after getting glutened earlier this week, I was finally getting back to 100% last night, but had some spicy food. I took some Maalox before heading to bed, and was up in the middle of the night feeling like ass soup.. Turns out Maalox wasn't a good choice after doing some reading. I'm more ranting than anything here... I'm at almost 4 weeks into going gluten free, and I'm hitting that proverbial wall where it feels like there's nothing I can have anymore. It's pretty messed up when something that was intended to make me feel better, will make me feel worse for a few days...

I also go with name brand Pepto Bismal liquid, it works fast to stop the pain and for me usually in one dose.

I've been using Gaviscon during my weaning off of Prilosec and its associated acid rebound effects. It works really well except for the moments when the tablets are foaming in your mouth. blagh.

I actually switched over as of today to Tums. I looked on the shelf at Walmart and every single pack I saw bears a "Gluten-Free" spot on the back of the packaging.

Don't you love it when they have those 2 beautiful words on something?

What is in the Maalox?

I am 3 weeks in and would have never thought of checking the Maalox bottle. I did just check my generic brand of liquid antacid as soon as I saw your post and thank goodness it is gluten-free cuz I just bought a bunch!

I'm not for sure what the culprit is in the Maalox, but I'm assuming it's the dubious word "flavoring".

If there is nothing obvious in the Maalox, maybe it was what you ate? You took it because the spicy food was bothering you. Could be somthing other than gluten

I agree. The spicey food may just be too much for your system just yet. Best to stick with whole foods for a bit and the fewer ingredients to start the better. A chicken breast or steak with a side of mashed or baked fresh potatoes is going to be better than something with a lot of ingredients that is spicey.
When new to the diet home cooked whole foods are the best way to go.

I was glutened by Maalox too when I was new to eating gluten-free. I believe it has wheat in it.

It for sure has gluten in it. From other posts and sites I'm reading, it was for sure the Maalox. I'm beginning to feel better, but every time I get glutened, I start having energy issues, it just sucks me dry...

Maalox is gluten free so it was something else that bothered you, most likely the spicy food. Anyone new to the gluten-free diet should avoid spicy food for awhile.
