Hi! I've just been prescribed sertraline and can't find if there are any safe versions out there. The pharmacy gave me a generic by aurobindo with sodium starch glycolate (no source specified). And the brand name (Pfizer) also has that ingredient, no source specified.

I'm trying to contact both companies to see if I can get a straight answer, but I hate relying on their claims that starch is safely sourced, since sometimes they don't really bother to check their shipments or record things properly. And given it's the holidays I don't know how soon I'll be able to reach someone at their customer service!

Does anyone know if any safe sertraline exists? Thanks!!

If it is in the pill form, it looks like it is possible that it could have wheat starch due to this ingredient "sodium starch glycolate" which can be "Starch glycolates are of rice, potato, wheat or corn origin":
