Anyone On Lo Loestrin Fe?

30 July 2012 - 06:47 AM

Hi All,
I am having to switch birth control as my current pill is too strong and has started to cause me to have tachycardia and insomnia. Since I am getting older my Dr. recommended I use a low dose pill and gave me some samples of Lo Loestrin Fe which he said most people do not have any side effects from. I spoke to the manufacturer and they told me that the product contains no gluten, however it is not certified gluten-free and they could not verify if there was any possiblity of cc. Is there anyone else taking this pill with success?

Thanks for your help!!

Antibiotics

25 May 2012 - 10:57 AM

Hi All,
Not sure where to post this one, but I recently ended up with a UTI and my Dr. prescribed a drug called Bactrim. Of course to make sure it was Celiac safe I looked it up online and found it was on the gluten-free Drug list, however there were endless horror stories from people about it being the worst drug they have ever been prescribed and I also saw it has been banned in several countries. I usually try natural remedies when possible, but I feel like I need to do the course of antibiotics on this time as I have an issue with my right kidney which makes me especially susceptible to kidney infections. I am extremely sensitive to medications for whatever reason so I am hoping someone who is Celiac and sensitive as well to meds might have a suggestion for an antibiotic they found relatively safe. Any advice is greatly appreciated! :)
