Otc Drugs And Cross Contamination

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone had an issue with it? I would think if you know for certain that all the inactive ingredients in a product are gluten-free, there's probably a %90 chance that it is in fact gluten free. My logic is that with important things like drugs - they're already going to make sure there's no cross contamination with the other drugs - therefore they're probably going to thoroughly clean the production lines in between each run anyway. 

 

Am I assuming too much or has anyone been told that an OTC drug wasn't gluten-free when all the ingredients were?

I have been told when calling a company that because of manufacturing processes they didn't consider the OTC product to be gluten free and certainly recommended I not take it.

If they say something like " no gluten ingredients. Don't know about the suppliers.....blah, blah". They don't test for gluten and have a legal department that told them to say that. I use them if they have no gluten ingredients.

Me four. But I love it when it says "gluten free" on the bottle (like my vitamins)! If there's a brand that's labeled gluten-free, and one that isn't, I'll definitely buy the gluten-free for sure one, even if it costs a little more.

    • Have him read about the disease and the multitude of repercussions that occur from gluten consumption that have nothing to do with "classic stomach" issues. Not following a strict gluten free diet can lead to terrible diseases because your body will be so weak and damaged. When my son was diagnosed, reading about the disease made a big impact on our family members. Good luck and stay strong!
    • When I get glutened, I cough. Loud.  for 20-30 minutes.  Once people hear that, they take it seriously.  Refer your son to the newbie thread. If he still doesn't get it, kick him in the posterior. Hard!  
    • How about cooked fruits? You could even cook bananas. This is just something to think about. This may sound rambling for a bit but stick with me please.: I feed my dog a raw diet and part of that raw diet is all kinds of fruits & veggies. The catch is that the fruits & veggies have to be frozen & then I thaw it for her to eat. So what I do is take the fruits & veggies & put them in the Ninja & it comes out as what I call goop. Spoon it into sandwich ziplock & stick them in the freezer to freeze, then thaw as needed. Why do I freeze it? Freezing it breaks down the cellular walls which makes the nutrients more available as it passes through her digestive tract. Now I can't say with any certainty that the same would be true of humans but it would be a reasonable assumption. So to sum up..... I'm thinking it might be worth a shot to try freezing fruits & veggies & see if then you could tolerate them, especially if you pureed them first. 
    • I am 7 weeks diagnosed with silent celiac.  I am doing great and feel like  I have a good handle on everything.  What I am struggling with is my 21 year old son not understanding my diagnosis and the importance of avoiding cross contamination and why all of a sudden I can't have a Cookie, piece of cake, etc..   Since I don't have physical symptoms, he doesn't think it will hurt to have a piece of cake or something else.  He doesn't yet know that I have contacted our doctor to have both my kids blood tested.  Is there any advice on how to convince him the severity of following a strict gluten free diet.
    • Thankyou ch88 you are so very kind, im so glad there are forums like this, so helpful.  Only signed up the other day and everyone is great.
