gluten-free Pain Relievers
0

4 posts in this topic

I struggle with migraine headaches and try to manage them with advil, ice and rest. I also use tylenol for minor headaches. I have been noticing that I have more stomach issues when I use these meds so I called tylenol and while they told me that most of their products are gluten free, the list of ingredients they had and the list I had on my box were different. They did not have pregelatinized starch on their ingredient list and could not tell me if it came from a wheat source. They said they would call me back and I have not heard from them as of today. Then, the owner of a gluten free market in our city told me that she was notified that Advil was no longer gluten-free, though their website still says it is. I am continuing to look into this but meanwhile, any suggestions of gluten-free pain meds? Should I look into compounding ibuprofen? I think that Alleve is ok...but I am nervous.

Thanks

Target brand ibprofen is labelled as gluten free but I haven't seen any other pain relievers that they make (acetemetaphin) or any other pain relievers labelled gluten free. I just stick with the ibprofen. (p.s. excuse my spelling - I know I don't have the drugs right, but I figured close enough...:))

The store owner was "notified" by whom? I think the store owner is mixed up. I seriously doubt Advil would suddenly start adding gluten just for the heck of it. And I think they would change their website of they did. Call them.

In 10 years, I've never known pregelatinized starch to come from wheat. I'm not saying it can't happen, I've just never seen it. And regular Tylenol has always been gluten-free.

And pretty much every generic I've ever checked out for these drugs has been gluten-free.

Last I checked, brand name Excederin was gluten-free and its good for migranes. You can usually call these compnaies and get an immediate response. Sometimes its a bit of a CYA statement : "We add no gluten ingredients but can't guarentee....."
