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?

fluoxetine 10mg

Fluoxetine-all strengths/forms(Barr, Par, Sandoz)

Yes, it is listed as gluten free. For verification, you can call the manufacturer Barr, Par, Sandoz - BPS.

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.

But the manufacture is not listed there. The manufacturer is a company called LEG.

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)

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/cons/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.

    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
