Epidural And Pregnancy
Posted 26 July 2012 - 03:47 PM
I hope someone can help answer a few questions for me.
This is my first child and I've known I have celiac for over a year. My concern is with the epidural if I decide to have one I hear they can or do contain gluten. If they do would I have any reaction from having one. I'm super reactive to gluten to the point I've had to change everything about my life style to go gluten free...changing shampoo's, lotions, soaps you name it I react. I know being celiac I have to be concerned about the medications I take but what about injections would I have the same reactions?

Who told you they have gluten? what does the anethesiologist that will administer it say? Maybe she/he could tell you the company that makes it and you could call them for reassurance.

Oral medications occasionally contain wheat starch. Injectable ones are definitely gluten-free.
