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...)
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.

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.
