My doc prescribed me Rozerem for my crazy insomnia, and I see on the label that the ingredients list "starch" -- anyone know what kind of starch it is? I'm currently waiting for a call back from the company, but wanted to check here as well, in case anyone has had experience with it.

It seems like an attractive sleep med, since it isn't supposed to mess up your sleep architecture -- it would be a shame if it's not gluten free.

Thanks for any info!

I've heard back from the company--they claim that there are 'no gluten ingredients used' in Rozerem, but (like so many companies) they are quick to say they can't promise that they have completely avoided all contact with gluten during the production of the drug. This is good enough for me, though - I'm going to give it a shot. If anyone has had any experience with Rozerem, I would still be interested in hearing it... I may post later to the sleep forum, too.

Nice of the company to get back with you.


1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms

Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance

2000-osteopenia

2001-had stroke because of medications I was given

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)

May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

Well, actually, I see now that I worded my post inaccurately. We called them back... but this time we got a person who was able to give us info. You know how it is :)
