Gluten Free Drug Lists

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody. I've been checking on some of my over-the-counter drugs to make sure they are gluten-free and wanted to post some information that I found this morning:

http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/ Lots of links with information

CVS's number to check is: 1-888-607-4287

I had a severe reaction to Benedryl and had to go to the doctor yesterday, but not due to gluten. Still, I'm checking everything now for gluten.

I hope these links are useful.

Very helpful! I feel like medications are the one food group which you constantly have to check up on for gluten. Our pediatrician gave us a good general rule of thumb for medications as well - the biggest threat for gluten in medications is with capsules. I guess the capsule itself sometimes is made with gluten.

Yes, I still forget sometimes and buy generics and don't check to see if they have gluten in them. Playing catch up right now. I'm taking a generic Zyrtec and haven't had a reaction to it, but haven't been able to find out the name of the manufacturer. Also, bought a non-coated aspirin (NSAID) from CVS that I have to call about.

Have you found any documented evidence that this is factual? If so, please post. Thank you. :)
