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. Additionally, we work closely with legislative authorities and other interested parties at all points along the food supply chain to ensure that safe and wholesome foods are provided to our consumers.

Our company complies with all applicable labeling regulations by the Food and Drug Administration and other regulatory bodies in the U.S. In addition, we have implemented an internal food allergen management policy, pursuant to which we have undertaken the labeling of any known allergens in the following categories: cereals (containing gluten and products of these including wheat, rye, barley, triticale, spelt, kamut, and oats, but not corn, rice, sorghum, or buckwheat), crustacea (including shrimp, prawns, crab, lobster, and crayfish), mollusks (including oysters, clams, scallops, and mussels), eggs, fish, peanuts, soybeans, milk, tree nuts, sesame seeds, and sulfites (greater than 10 mg/kg). Accordingly, we continuously assess our products and update supplier information in order to make new or existing labels accurately reflect the presence of the listed allergens.

Our Halls products are gluten free.

We appreciate your inquiry and welcome any additional questions you may have regarding any of our products.

Sincerely,

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!
