Medication Used To Soothe Glutening Symptoms

Does anyone use inderal LA and xanax for gluten-caused anxiety and subsequent hypertension? What's your opinion of it?

I don't know about the inderal but the Xanax does not have a gluten-free form, so I would avoid that one. Have you thought about maybe going with acupuncture for anxiety relief? It may do the trick and not mess with you brain chemistry. For many being gluten free takes care of these issues and they only come back when glutened. My family just deals with the occasional mental effects from being glutened because we know they are limited. For others the diet is not enough and I will let them give advice on the inderal.

Xanax does have a gluten free form. You just have to call the pharmacutical labs and check for the gluten free status of the drug. I finally found a generic Xanax (Alprazolam) made by Mylan Labs, which is gluten free. I did make many calls until I found it. Then, of course, you have to call the pharmacies to find one that carries this generic, but it can be done. NEVER SAY NEVER! An associate at Mylan Labs told me that most of their meds are gluten free, but to always call and make sure. I have had to use my Xanax 3 times this year and have never had a bad side effect from it--finally, I do not react to my Xanax and I am so happy about that.

I have taken it once for a glutening, and the other 2 times for panic. I have been very stressed at work as of late. Try to find a pharmacy that carries the Mylan brand of Xanax (Alprazolam).

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!

Hi Deb,

I switched from Xanax (due to gluten issue) to Klonopin six months ago, but would rather have Mylan alprozolam. I was planning on calling the local pharmacies to see if it is avalable (some Walgreens and CVS stores carry it), but I wondered if you may know of one in the NYC area that carries Mylan's generic version.

Thanks!

My Walmart gave me generic Zanax for $4, which happened to be Alprazolam from Mylan.

There are no Walmarts in New York City at this time, but I made some calls today and found that a CVS in my area has the Mylan Alprozolam, so as soon as I get the Rx that's where I'm going to have it filled.

Thanks
