Hi, I'm new here and I was wondering if anyone else heard that Excedrin was not going to be gluten free much longer? I can't remember now where I found this information ( I thought it was on clan thompson), but I'm sure that it said that Excedrin was now going to use wheat as an ingredient. Any answers would help, I use Excedrin for my migraines and would hate if I couldn't anymore! Thanks!

Here's the most recent info that ClanThompson sent on January 12, 2007:

"In a follow-up call to Bristol Myers Squibb today, we spoke with a

supervisor concerning information we were given about a re-formulation of

Bristol Myers Squibb over the counter products. The supervisor says we

were given incorrect information yesterday. NO BRISTOL MYERS SQUIBBS

PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN REFORMULATED TO CONTAIN WHEAT.

ALL OVER THE COUNTER BRISTOL MYERS SQUIBBS PRODUCTS ARE GLUTEN FREE

except for Keri Lotion.

The supervisor does not know why the representative we talked to

yesterday told us certain products had been reformulated but she will give

the representative in question some additional training so this problem

will not happen again - hopefully.

We are sorry for any confusion this gluten alert may have caused.

Best wishes,

Lani K. Thompson

Thank you Jukie. I do not know what I would do without my Extra Strength Excedrin!!!!! Most Tylenols are gluten-free, as is Aleve, and Advil.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
