Is Valtrex gluten-free?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have tried to google if Valtrex is gluten free, but can't seem to find any info. I have an outbreak of shingles and would really like to take this medicine, but not sure if I should. Any help would be appreciated.

Youch - shingles! Been there, done that, and it's no fun whatsoever. I couldn't find valtrex on either of these lists: Delphi confirmed products list or glutenfreedrugs.com. Below is a link to Glaxo if nobody else has any information.

I know that this is an old post but, wanted to include the information that I just received for anyone interested. I just spoke with a representative from Glaxo and they gave the generic answer for medications: that although none of the ingredients (active or inactive) contain gluten, they cannot confirm that they did not come into contact with gluten in the manufacturing process.
