Gluten Free Medications Now Not Gluten Free!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My Dr. says that I am still getting small amounts of gluten in my diet so I started calling again about all of my medicines. Suddenly medicines that were once gluten free are now getting the message: They do not contain gluten ingredients, but we cannot guarantee that the raw materials used in them is gluten free! I no longer have any antacids that are truly gluten free. Have you found your medicines to be the same message lately? Anyone have suggestions on a gluten free antacid?

Have yout tried Pepto Bismal liquid? That usually works great for me on the occasions that I get glutened. Even better is figuring out what is giving you pain and avoiding it. A food log can sometimes help.

Ditto. "Can't guarantee raw materials are gluten free" does not mean "contains gluten".

I tended to think that they were applying the CYA mentality and have continued my zantac. I have an ulcer and I have to have something. I have been desperately trying to figure out what caused the ulcer to happen, but in the meantime I need something to take to keep the acid down.
