  1. Really - Wth?

    Ambien CR has gluten in the coating. I took it one night and it kept me awake all night and had bad D. I have switched to the generic for Ambien which is Zolpidem. I take a high dose, but it works great!
  2. Dh And Thyroid Medication

    I was diagnosed with celiac disease 3 years ago, Have Hyperthyroidism (I take Synthroid), Cirrhosis of the Liver and Pulmonary Hypertension. I've had dry skin as long as I can remember and have also used lotion daily with Vitamin E in it. Since the first of the year, I noticed my arms have been more dry than usual, and about 2 weeks ago I started breaking out in this horrible rash on my arms, stomach and back. I finally went to a Dermatologist who did 2 biopsies on my left arm which had been oozing yellow junk. So now I'm waiting for those results, but was told that it looks like DH. I have been very strict eating gluten free for 3 years and have no idea what brought this on after being gluten-free so long. I am taking Keflex for 10 days to clear up the infection where I scratched and scratched, and am using a prescription ointment. Any thoughts????
  3. Ghirardelli Chocolate

    Thanks for all the replies to my post! I did call Ghiradelli directly and received a call back. The lady told me all their chocolates are gluten free except the ones with crisps since they're made with barley. They throw out the first 2 batches on each line in case of CC.
  4. Is Ghirardelli Chocolate gluten free?
