I agree with you it should be the Pharmacy's responsability, but I do feel safer when I call the mfg. myself. Sometimes they can give me the number, sometimes is only a name, and I have to do the research myself
Daughter prescribed omeprazole 10 mg. called pharmacy to see if it had gluten in it and they said didn't look like it but I should call manufacturer. Whose responsible for that? I guess ultimately me just frustrating that they don't take time to be concerned.
In the past 8 months I have had to do it like 3 times, since my Pharmacy keeps changing Manufacturers on one of my meds. At times I've had to call 5 or 6 places to get an actual person to get me the answers I am looking for, a royal pain in the you know what!!!!!

Personally, I don't trust the pharmacies to check--I ALWAYS call the manufacturer directly because I know all the questions to ask.
I totally agree with this! I trust no one to get this right, especially someone who doe not have celiac disease. Everyone is responsible for their own health, ultimately, so need to do their own homework. It's another good reason to only take meds you absolutely have to have and not ones doctors push on you for no good reason.
