In Topic: Accidentally Ate Gluten

17 August 2014 - 08:52 AM

Thanks for the reply's!  I did feel lousy yesterday-tired, headache, no appetite, brain foggy.  It seemed to be more mild compared to when I was eating gluten all the time. That was the first time in 3 years I have knowingly eaten any gluten  I was worried I'd be down and out for several days, but symptoms only lasted about 24 hours, and this morning I am feeling fine....for now....life as a celiac.....

Everyone is saying to check with the manufacturer.  My pharmacist checked with the manufacturer. (OP)  The manufacturer admitted the pills contain gluten.  So, what the replies are saying, is, maybe the pharmacist and the manufacturer are wrong?

 

I will call the manufacturer on Tuesday myself and scrutinize each ingredient.

Pharmacists have no idea. You should contact the manufacturer. A lot of them will not want to say they are gluten-free because they don't test them. I just make sure they have no obvious gluten ingredients. That said, there are very few meds that actually have gluten.

There is a website - glutenfreedrugs.com Which lists some meds. You might check there.

Thanks for the reply.  The pharmacist already contacted the manufacturer and they confirmed the pill does contain gluten.  My question is:  is it such a small amount (under 20 ppm?) that it won't cause symptoms or damage?
