Are there any painkillers that are free of both gluten and corn? My corn allergic friend can take advil geltabs, so I bought some of those, only to find that they contain gluten. Grr. I'm not as sensitive to corn as I am to gluten, so I have taken things that I know are gluten-free, but not free of corn when I absolutely can't stand it anymore. However, since both cause pain, it seems stupid to take something for pain that includes either ingredient. Anybody?

Dunno what that makes me, but I'm not going back.

I am gluten/corn/soy free. After doing as much research as I could, I came to the conclusion there is nothing available EXCEPT BC Aspirin powder. I got some and found out I react VERY badly to aspirin now too, so I had to have Tylenol made at a compounding pharmacy. In South Dakota, you need a prescription to have even an over-the-counter medicine made. I got the prescription at the free clinic so I wouldn't have to pay $110 for a doctor's office visit. The Tylenol only cost $35 for 200 capsules. Not great, but not as bad as I had feared.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

Argh. I was afraid that would be the answer. I don't even know if I could get a doctor to write a prescription for that. I fight through most things without taking meds, but there comes a point during my period when it's either curl up in corner and die or take something and remain mildly functional. My class of 4 and 5 year olds might freak out a bit if I chose the curl up and die approach. B) Tonight that means that I'm dealing with the rebound ick from breaking down and taking alleve earlier today. Stupid body.

I'll have to check into that. Would be awesome if that were the case. Unfortunately, what I took was the generic, which I'm fairly sure did have corn.

From their website:

Does ALEVE contain gluten?We do not add any gluten to our products. However, we cannot guarantee that they are 100% gluten free as this product is produced in a facility that manufactures or packages other items which may contain gluten.
