Gluten-free Medicines?

Recommended Posts

My daughter is sick right now, just a very mild Earinfection- still her fever spikes over 105. Naturally I treated her with Motrin, little did I know that only the newer packages are glutenfree- gluten and caseinfree to be exact! I was already wondering why she had the runs and extremely bad and stinky gas, even though she was glutenfree and dind't get better. I unintentionally was glutening her. don't they have to write on the package when there is gluten int he Medicine? Most of the Chidlrens Tylenol ones seem to ahve it too, eceopt the Grapeflavor ones or so in the liquids, gues hwat I got- NOT the Grape flavored one!

do we have a list someplace here that shows you in one look what is glutenfree in Meds and what not?

We have the 1 yr. checkup for my daughter today, are the shots glutenfree as well? She got no problems with the Eggprotein that's in most the shots, but I wonder how would she react now if there was Gluten in it? I'll be calling the Hotlines of the Meds for it!

My kids have bowel problems whenever I give them Motrin, too, but they've been new bottles. I think the problem is the Motrin itself can be a little hard on the tummy.

Susi -

Several other Children's Tylenol medicines, not just the grape flavor, are gluten free. I just received an e-mail with a long list verifying this since I also became concerned after your post - I had non-grape flavored Children's Tylenol, too, that I had been giving my kids.
