Tricor Not Gluten Free?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if Tricor is gluten free? I was told that it was gluten free but when I do an internet search, I find that it has gluten in the coating. Don't know which to believe. My boyfriend has Celiac Disease and takes Tricor (we were told it was safe) but he still seems to have a lot of problems, so we are in the narrowing down process of what could be causing problems and came across Tricor possibly having gluten in the coating. Any one know?

I would call the company directly and ask. If it has gluten in the coating or binders it will make him ill. I do not know what this drug is for but would suggest that a for sure gluten free alternative be prescribed if it is not safe.

Silly me I trusted him and forgot to double check. Today when I stood up I had trouble walking the first few steps. Ill have to check tomorrow to see if they have updated there meds.
