I woke up this morning with the beginnings of a cold (figures the week of finals, eh?) and I'm wondering what cold medicines are gluten-free. I'm hoping I can take something liquid (Theraflu or dayquil) since my throat is feeling kind of closed up. :(

I got this response in April 2010 from Halls if that helps. Did you check the websites for the cold meds?

Thank you for your inquiry concerning the presence of allergens in products produced by our company.

We are a food company committed to very high standards and we have a clearly defined policy of complying with food regulations.

Here is a site for all gluten free medications - also a great list to bring to the doctors office if they prescribe you anything.

http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/

For the record - dayquil and nyquil are safe!

Also - a list of Walgreens OTC meds are on this list so don't hesitate to go store brand too.

My doc has a copy of this list for me too.....and he uses it!


Take everything away from me - food, habits...take it all! But don't touch my bacon! You can NOT have my bacon!
