  1. I didn't know that. I'll make sure to do that....thank you so much!
  2. That's a good question. Yesterday I told my dr about the headaches and he switched me to another antibiotic. I started it last night and so far it's been fine....no headache! I still have the whitehead bump on my gum, but at least it doesn't hurt! Thanks NoGlutenCooties....I'm getting a probiotic this afternoon. I probably should've been doing that anyway. I'm so glad the headache is gone & am feeling like myself again. Thanks!
  3. Thank you all for the ideas. This has helped alot! I googled the antibiotic and it seems fine, but my body still doesn't handle it well. I called my doctor and he is giving me another one and told me to take benadryl. I called that company and found one of their products that is ok. I'll check the new antibiotic as well. Thank you all so much! :-)
  4. Hi Everyone! I'm new to this site. I've been reading a lot of the information here and it's wonderful! I especially like the Newbie thread. I've been gluten free for 2 1/2 years and doing pretty well until recently. My dentist gave me an antibiotic (Amoxicillin 500 mg capsules) 3x a day for 10 days for a gum infection. I started taking it Tuesday the 11th. Yesterday I woke up with a mild headache that slowly got worse all day. Last night around 11 pm the pain woke me up it was so bad. Even my face hurt! My question is how do you find out if prescribed meds have gluten in them? I had the pharmacy check the ingredient list and she read each one to me. Nothing sounded like it would be gluten. I haven't had to take an antibiotic since I was dz. Thanks so much for any advice!
  5. What is his first name? I'll see if he takes my insurance. Thanks for the information!
