Both Claritin and Reactine are gluten free here in Canada. I'm not sure about the US though. I do wish countries would get together on this stuff seeing as how we are so close to the border :rolleyes:

I have also confirmed that the generic Loratidine (Equate, made by Novartis) is gluten-free. I called on 3/7/2006. You can find it at Wal-mart and it is a lot cheaper than the brand name.

This is great to know--thanks for checking on it :) Claritan gets expensive--and the Zyrtek has a co-pay with our insurance of $45!!

Judy, Claritin (and Claritin-D) have casein. I found this out after I'd been taking it for 3 months! :o (I'm casein intolerant). It was a low enough dose to not exactly mess me up big time, but it was keeping me from feeling as well as I could. I found that most of the over the counter anti histamines have a lactose/milk-derived base. I went to People's Pharmacy and got them to make me a compound version of Claritin-D with zero extra stuff in it, just the medicine in a capsule. You will need a prescription for it though, I got one from my allergy doc.
