My daughter is so sensitive that I try not to buy purchase anything that does not say gluten free. I have looked online at differnt websites with gluten free medications, but scared to purchase. Can anyone please help me? Thanks!

Can you tell us what kind of meds she needs? If they are script find out the maker from the pharmacey before you pick the script up and then call the maker directly.

In the past I've used http://glutenfreedrugs.com/

Near the bottom are links for an alphabetical list, list by therapeutic category, PDFs etc.

Sorry I didn't make myself clear on medications needed. She does not take any prescription medications as of right now. Just wanted to make sure that my cabinets were stocked for allergy, cold/flu, cough etc. She is extremely sensitive and I prefer not to use anything not labels gluten free. Thank you for any and all information!

I've noticed lately that Target and Meijer have been listing on the packaging of their store brand OTC meds if a product is gluten free.
