I was just diagnosed with ciliac and also been diagnosed with acid reflux several years ago and have always taken omeprazole 20 mg capsules manufactured currently by Sandoz, which is a script. I have tired to search to find out if it is gluten free to no avail. Does anybody you know if it is gluten free? If not any substitutes? I need help ASAP as my reflux is starting to come back again. I have been glutin free 3 days now and acid reflux is starting to come back....Many thanks! :(

Acid reflux can be controled without medication :)

However, i haven't heard of omeprazole having it. Best bet is to call the manufacturer to ask.

I emailed sandoz about a prescription I take and got a response within 24 hours. for my prescription they replied and said there are no gluten ingredients. The email to contact they regarding products is easy to find on the website.

I found out and they can't guarantee it--so I must forget this. :( Do you or anyone else know of anything I can take for a hiatial hernia, acid reflux, heartburn. My chest feels like on fire!!

I am not entirely sure how this site works so I may be posting multiple times. I found out omeprazole is not guaranteed by Sandoz. Is there anything else I can take of hiatial hernia, acid reflux, heartburn? My chest feels like on fire. Also still very itchy on my head mostly and some all over and face/. Is there anything I can use to relieve the itchness that is safe? I don't have any open blisters or a rash--just itchy.....Thanks!

Of course they cannot guarantee it. Nobody can. A guarantee creates a legal liability for them in the event they received a contaminated ingredient from a supplier. Even if they test, they have to qualify the statement based on the sensitivity of the test. The may, for example, be able to guarantee < 20 ppm (which is likely actually zero, but cannot be proven).

I have taken several prescriptions from a variety of companies since being gluten free. I have called on every one before I fill them. Every time I get "but we don't promise/guarantee it is gluten free blah blah blah statement." Having previously given similar statements myself working in a call center, we called these CYB statements. Cover Your Butt. Like Peter says, the legal implications of making an absolute guarantee is insane, the best you will get is a general, yes, the drug is in fact gluten free but CYB.

Thanks for the CYB info--might take omeprazole again--after I get some gluten free time under my belt. I'm only recently diagnosed & glutin free 4 days now. Trying to take it "One day at a Time'--but REALLY hard at this point.

    • Could Lung Inflammation Be Related To Celiac?
      Ive had asthma since I was a child and it was in remission and now that I am gluten free I notice that when I have gluten I have a tight chest and can't breathe.  I am never wheezy though.  When I don't have gluten I am fine.  
    • Fluttering/twitching In Lower Abdomen
      For a solid week I had a flutter, twitching in my left- mid- abdomen that seemed to fit all these descriptions. It was not painful, just unsettling, like a small animal was struggling around in my intestine. I could not feel the motion with my hand and couldn't see it.
      The major condition that corresponded with the timing of this condition was that I was traveling in a car for about 11 days. Therefore, possible causes were nutritional changes because of available food;  food poisoning of some sort; greatly increased automobile exhaust inhalation. I had basically ruled out food poisoning immediately because it seemed so peculiarly muscular and didn't get worse.  It came down to environment and/or nutrition or some kind of organ failure. I did research online and magnesium deficiency was mentioned as a possible cause. About a week into it, I bought some whole-food vitamins (just read fine-print and see it didn't actually have magnesium; it didn't seem to do much). I waited until I was home to use some Magnesium Malate I thought I had, and took that as well as some other vitamins and herbs I sometimes take (I am not a regular vitamin-taker, preferring to get all that from good food choices), and within a day the twitching had all but disappeared. The cure was perhaps getting away from sucking exhaust fumes for 10 hours a day; perhaps it was returning to my normally healthy home diet with lots of vegetables (I have never shied away from or had adverse reactions from wheat that I perceived); perhaps (I think this *may* have been the key, though I only took one tablet) the magnesium supplement; perhaps a diminishment of road stress. I don't know why for sure, but the twitching is gone. I hope this information helps relieve someone else's symptoms and keep the doctor at bay too!
    • 3 months gluten-free still feeling cramps
      Hi folks, I have been a lurker on this site since my diagnosis in the end of Oct of 2015 and I have been doing everything gluten-free since then. I am a 40 year old male and my whole ordeal started in Nov 2014 when I had the sharpest jaw pain that I could ever imagine, I went to the dentists several times and they found nothing and I was taking Advil constantly to numb the pain. They even saw an infection on my gums so they gave me antibiotics but they never did anything to the tooth because they did not know what was wrong so they told me to go to a root canal specialist. Finally I was able to go to a root canal specialist and he found my issue but I needed another round of antibiotics because I still had the infection. I got better in April of 2015 from the pain when my tooth was finally worked on and I was good for a while till June, that is when I started feeling my stomach cramps. the pain initially was not that bad so I naturally ignored it until it got stronger and that is when I went to my GP which referred me to my current gastrologist.  I told my gastrologist my symptoms which were of course stomach pains and cramps but also my sporadic constipation and rashes. He immediately started to suspect that I might have Celiac but he wanted to confirm with an endoscope first. I went in to do endoscopy in late September, both Celiac and H. Pylori came back negative from biopsy but I had gastritis and ulcers. In Late October I did blood work and Celiac came out positive, the doctor said that was weird :-/ .  They did CT scan and found that I have mucosal lesion in the small intestines and partial obstruction which I think it was the antibiotics that made the lesions but the doctors are not sure, I hate when they are unsure about things. The doctor rubbed my shoulder and said what I had was rare, rare how I asked but he was unclear when he talked but it boarded around mean at my age getting Celiac diagnosis. Anyway I have been gluten-free since Oct 2015 and I did tone down my food intake with blander foods to heal the ulcer for several months in which I found that I was semi getting better but not quite and so I decided to really tone it down this past month eating nothing but rice and chicken for lunch and dinner and eggs in the AM but I still feel some cramping. The cramping is better than it was before but now it seems like it spread from my stomach to my right mid abdomen, I plan on seeing the doctor again soon but I am asking has anyone experienced this before? I hear stories of people going gluten free then in 2 weeks they are better and I looked at the stats and 90% of the people that go gluten-free feel better in weeks. My cramps are mild , from a scale of 1 to 10 it ranges on a 3 to 4 level and it also gives me the feeling of being numb around my stomach and mid abdomen on the right side. Has anyone experienced anything like this?

      Sheep and goat's milk still contain  lactose, if that is the issue.

      just out of curiosity, can you try something like goat cheese? or something made from sheep's milk? It might give you the satisfaction of cheese without the dairy issue.
