Should be, really depends on the company making it. I know both brands I have taken over the past month or so do not cause any gluten reactions (dealing with a abscess) NOTE it does cause nausea and can cause gas issues ESPECIALLY on a empty stomach.

Here is a pharmacist who advocates for celiac disease.  He has a "new list".  Not all products that he recommended in the past have been re-tested or confirmed.  Here is the main page:

Here is the new list:

Teva is an approved amoxicillin.  Ask your  pharmacist to order or be like me and call 6 pharmacies before you find it in stock (found at small independent pharmacy).  The price reasonable (less than  $25).  My regular pharmacy was going to order it, but I need the drug fast.  Like Ennis, I had a tooth infection.  

My pharmacist does not always have time to check my medication, so I do it.  I call the drug company.  As long as the ingredients are verified as gluten-free, I am happy.   I also have the doctor write "must be gluten free" on the prescription.  If I do not have time or am really sick, I use this list and insist on only those drugs on the list.

Teva is a great company for gluten-free drugs.  I have used their Z Pak before, which is Azythromycin, I believe, and never had any issues with it so I stick with Teva brand.  They are an Israeli company.
