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.

    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Hi my name is Alex and I am 23 years old. I am suffering so badly right now in life. Everyday I have multiple, very severe panic attacks. I have called 911 many times in the last 6 months. I am suffering with vertigo, intense weakness and pains, I can not digest anything, I have terrible acid reflux, I can't sleep, I can't relax, my heart constantly palpitates, my breathing is "forced labor" all day. I am suffering in a mental fog. I have been from doctor to hospital to doctor and every EKG comes back normal, every doctor says the same thing, I am struggling with anxiety and they write me whatever prescription of the week they are offering  I recently took it upon myself to cut gluten out of my diet, and wallah! I felt like I did in high school within 2 days. I work in NYC and many times it is nearly impossible to find something containing no gluten, and many times when I ask they tell me "No Gluten" and I eat whatever food I ordered (probably salad w/ dressing) and i find myself driving home in a terrible panic attack. Panic is my main symptom. I have not been diagnosed yet, but the difference from how I feel and how to the people around me tell me I act I am 100% convinced. The question I'm having is, what do you think? Is it possible I have Celiac? Can panic be the main symptom? I'm telling you right now, my anxiety is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. I lay on the ground for 2 hours with numb limbs feeling like I am having a stroke unable to talk to anyone. I have 2 of these a day. Please let me know your thoughts. I truly am a novice with all of this. I am suffering and I need help. Thanks
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The following link might be helpful for others experiencing simlar psychosomatic issues with doctors. Although it's only for psychiatrists, I think it should be for all doctors! http://www.psychsearch.net/complaints/ The neuropsychiatrist I saw might fall into this category? I can checkmark:

       Falsified medical records
       No Biological Test for "Mental Illness" (no blood, urine or other lab testing)
       Breach of Confidentiality (...if she sends my medical records to my doctor or discusses them with him. I am requesting a copy of my records from this doctor t see if she sent anything to him.)
       Physical Illness Misdiagnosed as "Mental Illness"
       I was told I have a "chemical imbalance" (without any lab tests)
       Unethical Conduct
       Unprofessional conduct
       Something else that didn't seem quite right  
    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
