Which Caugh Syrups Are Okay?

Recommended Posts

I checked through the "search" mechanism, and all the threads came up with corn syrups and maple syrups, but I couldn't find any information from previous threads regarding childrens' caugh syrups.

I contacted Tylenol last May, and they were saying their chewable Tylenol tablets were new, so the rep I talked to didn't know if their tablets were okay for celiacs. However, she claimed the children's liquid Tylenol was gluten free. Has anyone found out anything new about Tylenol tablets, since May, 2006?

And what about your traditional Robitussin for kids and Vicks Formula 44 for kids? Vicks rub-on stuff? Is it okay? I know Vaseline can have gluten, so I've avoided Vicks Vapo-rub. Any advice on these cold remedies?

I've got the chicken soup in the croc pot already, so at least I've got that ol' stand by! ;)

I know I was told dimatap(sp) is not gluten free ( it's in the drug book as containing gluten) but it's formula could have change..not sure. My husband said last time he checked he thinks triminic was gluten-free but call the company and make sure.

I would call now because they aren't open on weekends and late nights when you really need it. I will be calling the company that makes triminic tomorrow to make sure, I will post on that one. That is the only one I use, it IMO is the best.

Good to know tylenol liq is gluten-free though, thanks!!
