I Think My Pills Have Gluten

Recommended Posts

I just found 1 source through google that shows my one of my meds has gluten in it.

I'm borderline freaking out. Whats the best way to find this out for sure?

The name of the company that makes it should be on your bottle. Most likely in really, really tiny letters. If it is not there call the pharmacy and ask for the name of the company. Then do a search using the company name and the word contact and you should get a phone number for them. Since wheat starch is considered gluten free I don't ask if meds have gluten I ask if they have wheat and tell them I am allergic to wheat. I get a better answer that way since barley and rye aren't used in any script meds, that I know of anyway.
