Medrol / Methylprednisolone By Caldista Is Gluten Free

12 December 2009 - 03:28 PM

As we all well know by now, drug manufacturers are notoriously bad about labeling their products...

Anyway, I was prescribed Medrol today which was filled in generic form called Methylprednisolone manufactured by Cadista Pharmaceuticals. The patient prescribing information shows two types of unidentified starch as inactive ingredients: pregelatinized starch and sodium starch glycolate.

I called the medical specialist at Cadista today, 12/12/2009, and got the following information:

The product is gluten free as the pregelatinized starch is corn based and the sodium starch glycolate is potato based.

Hope this helps someone else avoid the runaround I just went through!
