Answer...

Called Sandoz today (5/31) and they said they do not use Gluten in any of their drugs. They use corn or potato starches, none are Rye, Wheat or Barley.

I'm sorry, Faegan--I missed your post this morning (was in a hurry to get ready to go out). Sandoz told me the same thing--I take one of their generics for my blood pressure. Glad you got an answer! :)

I called sandoz today.  12.17.18.  They would not say whether gluten ingredients were used.  Just said "we cannot certify that our products are gluten free."  So I believe sandoz products are not safe for celiac like me.

Unfortunately, drug companies do not have to follow the FDA guidelines.  The pharmaceutical companies lobby hard!  I think a bill was shot down twice in Congress.  So, consider advocating for this cause. 

Your Sandoz amoxicillin online shows that it does not contain gluten ingredients.  But I took it two years ago.  Did I get glutened?  No way to prove it, but I am not using this manufacturer again.  Sandoz makes this in Romania now.

Consider supporting TEVA.  They disclose to the pharmacist who advocates for us.

We all need to be wary of our drugs whether we need to be gluten free or not:

Get involved and champion this cause!  If we can buy safely from a company like Kraft, we should be able to buy drugs safely too.
