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!!

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! :)
