Good morning, all! I have recently started taking Xyzal. I took it a number of years ago and it worked well for me, so when it went over the counter, I decided to try it.  And I have felt off this entire week.  I had only one other incident that I could have been "gluten" (flavored K-Cup that is just labeled with natural flavors), but since I am only intolerant, usually within 48 hours of being glutened I feel better. I am DRAGGING today. 

I went crazy on a Google search trying to find out if Xyzal is gluten free. I have run into a lot of things. Some sources say yes it is. Most other sources say nothing.  The big long gluten free med list (PDF) online, which was updated in April 2017 (a week ago actually) does not list Xyzal as gluten free, so I'm now distressed that I've been poisoning myself for over a week.

Does anyone out there take it and have issues at all?  Has anyone ever contacted the company to find out if its gluten free? I am going to contact them later today.  I tried to search the forums but was inconclusive as well. :/

Did you call the drug manufacturer?  Are you looking for an actual gluten label in the box?  It does not appear to have any gluten ingredients, at least on the tablets.  Drugs do not fall under the FDA rules for gluten free.  Most drugs are gluten free, however.  Too bad it is not clear cut.  If you are looking for a cause, this would be it!!!

Anyway, it should be safe if the drug company says it does not contain. Gluten, but they just do not test for gluten.
