I've compared the inactive and active ingredients of the following CVS Allergy Medication to the Unsafe Ingredient list:
http://www.cvs.com/s...ze?skuId=477071

The only thing that worries me is that there is an extra ingredient listed on CVS' website for this allergy medication that is not listed on my box here at home. It is Pregelatinized Starch. It states it is unknown whether or not this is processed with Gluten.

I have heard that it is better to stay away from generic medications. However, I have also heard that CVS brand medications are usually Gluten free. I've double checked all of the other ingredients, which are not on the list.

Anyone have experience with this medication or know if it is gluten free?

Thanks yet again. Also, appreciate all of your previous replies and help with answering my previous questions.

Merry Christmas everyone! :)

I ALWAYS call the lab where it was manufactured, just in case.

Hi,
I've noticed that Target has began to label their generic brands as gluten free within the past year and a half or so. I was able to take their generic Allegra last summer without a problem and I am very sensitive to cross contamination. Not sure if this is an option for you, but wanted to let you know.
