Medications?

Recommended Posts

My husband wanted to know if we should be looking at meds (both OTC and scripts) before giving them to our daughter. She just got a script for some meds for an ear infection and we asked them before placing it and they kinda looked at us like we were a bit fruity.

Anyone know?

Yes--you need to look at any and all medications that she will be taking. If the pharmacy can't tell you, you can ask who the manufacturer of the drug is, and call them yourself. I have done this several times. All the companies I contacted were very helpful. Also, you can check out www.glutenfreedrugs.com. But if you are not sure, or in the case of a generic, it's best to call. :)

I saw that list the other day. I have the same problem. How do I know where my generics are manufactured? I'm not sure who to contact for that. I went into Walgreen's today and the pharm tech didn't know how to check many of them. She did give me a complete list of all the gluten-free Walgreen's products though.

At CVS, the pharmacy prints the manufacturer's name on the label--at least the one near me does. It's in tiny print right under the drug name. In any case, the pharmacy should at least be able to give you the name of the drug manufacturer--then all you have to do is call. Recently, my GP was going to give me some samples she had for a BP drug--before I went and picked it up, I called the office and the nurse gave me the name over the phone--I called the co. and found out that the pills were not gluten-free! So they just called in a Rx for my usual stuff.
