I just started the prescription. O don't know why I didn't think about it, but I called the pharmacy tonight to see if it was gluten-free. The pharmacist told me it was a manufacture by the name of LEG. He said i would have to look it up to see if it's gluten-free. I can't find the manufacture anywhere. Anyone heard of them?

I remember that Ravenwood suggested that you have your dr's write "Gluten Free" on all prescriptions.

Your pharmacist can get pissy with you, but they must adhere to physician's orders.

Call your dr's nurse or M.A. and ask them to revise the prescription. If you need the med right away, tell them you only want 1 or 2 of the pills and see what happens. I don't think they can make you take all or none of the prescription, but you'll have to be careful when you pick up your next rx, because the old rx will be there waiting for you.

Hope this helps.

Positive improvement from elimination diet. Mother dx'd by Mayo Clinic in late 1980s. Negative blood tests and Upper & Lower GI biopsy. Parathyroidectomy 12/09. Recurring high calcium level 4/10. Gluten-free 4/10. Soy & Dairy Free 6/10. Corn free 7/10. Grain free except rice 8/10. Legume free 6/11. Fighting the battle of the battle within myself, and I'm going to win!

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

Here is additional information: (although this tread is two years old it refers to a manufacturer by name. I expect that generics can have multiple manufacturers)

http://www.celiac.co...ured-by-sandoz/

But, I have not known a drug to contain wheat since it is listed as one of the main allergens. I don't think that barley malt or rye would be players here.

I think you're safe. But I could not find anything on LEG. Perhaps, in the druggist haste....

Here is some more information:

http://www.drugs.com...fluoxetine.html

Before Using fluoxetine

In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For fluoxetine, the following should be considered:
Allergies

Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to fluoxetine or any other medicines. Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals. For non-prescription products, read the label or package ingredients carefully.



Go back to your Pharmacist and have him/her check it.

out. I do rely on the GlutenFree Drugs Listing I provided. My meds when I need them are pretty specific.

They can contain wheat starch. Because wheat starch is considered gluten free I usually tell them I have a wheat allergy. I take a med that has a name brand form that ISN'T gluten free, my doctor called the company while I sat there, and he then called on a generic form and that was safe.
