  1. I've read the old posts on generic ambien cr and whether it's gluten-free but am still confused. I am specifically wondering about the blue round pill that says "ZCR" (I don't have the bottle anymore so not sure who the manufacturer is). The pharmacy hasn't been helpful either. Just wondering if it's gluten-free. It looks like the brand name IS gluten free now, for whatever that's worth. Thank you!
  2. Your Favorite Travel Remedies?

    Thanks, all! I got some digestive enzymes ("glutenease" or some such) and some oregano oil just in case. I will also try to not worry about it too much! Thanks again
  3. Your Favorite Travel Remedies?

    Any thoughts from anyone? I'm new here and would love the wealth of experience from this forum's members I'm leaving very soon for my trip and would love to know about any OTC or Rx remedies that work for you when you get glutened. Thanks in advance!
  4. At the time I was diagnosed with celiac, I also had elevated ASCA and was DNAse sensitive and detected. My symptoms upon starting a gluten-free diet all but disappeared and I pretty much feel great, except for recently - some old symptoms, some new GI ones, and general weirdness. Is it worth following up with my GI about the possibility of Crohns? I know the ASCA can be elevated with celiac, so I suppose she could just retest my blood, but I'm thinking what about a scope? After years of being dismissed by doctors, I'm hesitant to ask my GI for this, so I won't if it's not likely to find anything.
  5. I'm about to leave for a long trip to SE Asia and I'm scared. I've been gluten-free for a while now and I never intentionally eat gluten. In fact I am extremely careful not to. However, there have been the occasional accidents for whatever reason - CC, etc. And when this happens (as I'm sure is the case for most of you all), it's terrible. I can have symptoms (GI and neurological) for days and weeks and it really messes with me. The worst symptom is that it's like a terrible hangover that won't go away no matter what I do. So, with that history, what can I take with me either as a precaution before eating in restaurants (like an enzyme) or for if I start feeling unwell, so that the rest of the trip isn't miserable? What's your favorite "glutened" remedy? I read somewhere that marshmallow root is good (?). Basically, I'm looking for stuff that doesn't take up a lot of space in my bag and preferably is not a liquid because of liquid restrictions on airplanes, but that's fine if that's your best suggestion! If you have an OTC or prescription medication suggestion, I'm open to that, too, and have a doctor who is pretty open to prescribing various things if I go to her with the name of a particular drug. Disclaimer: I know the only cure is not eating gluten, and again, I would never intentionally eat it. I'm just concerned that even with the precautions I'll take (including restaurant cards and ordering meals w/ no sauce), something will happen. Thank you.
