I called the manufacturers of Xantac and Dulcolax. They say that none of their Xantac products are certified gluten-free. Bad news. :( They did tell me, however that the Dulcolax products (both tablet and gel-cap) are gluten free!

Just because they don't test for gluten, doesn't mean they put any gluten ingredients in the product. There is a difference.

I have taken Zantac and been fine. Usually the best statement you will get from drug manufacturers is yes there are gluten ingredients in the drug or that there are no gluten containing ingredients in the product but they don't guarantee that somewhere (suppliers) that there isn't possible cross contamination.
