    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Hi all! I was recently prescribed symbicort for asthma like symptoms. I have been taking it for a couple of days and I feel like pooh - same way I feel when I've been glutened. Of course, I'm racking my brain trying to figure out if I have picked gluten up somewhere, and the only new thing is the symbicort. I'm trying to find information and I don't see anywhere where it definitively states it is gluten free. The ingredients are Budesonide and Formoterol. Does anyone have experience with this medication or with these ingredients? I did learn that Budesonide is used to treat Celiac? I found that interesting. Thanks in advance!

It could be. Head ache is a side effect, from what I read, and I am working on day 4 of a head ache. Super nauseous and achy yesterday, but that seems to be subsiding. So, maybe it's viral, or something. Good ole Celiac always keeps us guessing!

Did you ever discover if it was gluten free or not. Just prescribed and want to make sure. Thanks! 

This drug was on the gluten-free list.  It should be gluten free still.

You can check pillbox too (gov website):

and....you can talk to your pharmacist.
