Here is a quote from Cepacol's website so I would take them....... and feel better!!! :)

"Cepacol® Lozenges and Cepacol® Sprays contain no gluten, wheat, or grain"

Hope this helps.

Since I see you're on theCanadian border, candian Fisherman's Friends are gluten-free and work very well.

I've always loved any kind of cherry-flavored hard candy (cough drop or not), but what is probably more effective (though not as tasty) is to do hot salt water gargles (I kid you not, they're amazingly effective) and drink as much as you possibly can. I know, I know, it'll mean that you'll have to pee almost constantly, but, like I tell my kids, you'll be peeing out all the germs (drown those suckers!). For sore throats, there are several brands of licorice tea that have no caffeine and are VERY soothing to a scratchy throat.

Hope you feel better soon!

Also, Hall's Sugar Free varieties of Black Cherry, Strawberry, Honey-Lemon, and I think the rest of their sugar free varieties are gluten free--any of their sugar-containing cough drops are not gluten free (even though they look like it when you read the ingredients because the way or the place that they process their glucose has high contamination risks.

And for those that prefer the all-natural approach...I like Thayer's Slippery Elm Lozenges (cherry). They work well for me.

Me too! I didn't think that they contained gluten ( I spoke to a rep from Hall's who told be that they were gluten-free), so I took one and within 30 minutes, I was so sick that I thought I was going to die. It was awful.

I was using them non-stop for like 2 weeks, and then missed 3 weeks of school because i got so sick from them and was throwing up every 10 minutes.

DON"T ever take them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, I just picked up the Hall Fruit Breezers, the ingredients look okay, but it does say flavors. Thanks flagbabyds, that was a close one!

There is a great tea called "Throat Coat" which singers use. It is gluten-free and really soothing. It's made by "Traditional Medicinals" and I buy it at the grociery store.

Another great throat-soother is to combine a little honey and fresh squeezed lemon juice, warm a bit and take by the spoonful as you need it. :)

    • these sound like celiac reactions  yes   ... basically avoid anything that causes the reaction   always and find your self a great natural practitioner and   rebuild  your body .. Rest vitamins digestive enzymes and very strict diet  Good Luck
    • Hey guys im from the UK and this site is really helpful for me. I've been diagnosed with Coeliac disease (uk spelling) for 5 years now and I slowly became dairy intolerant, which makes sense and I live with this now... but now alcohol has turned on me.  I don't drink often and I don't drink a lot (I used to in my uni years) but the reaction the next day (or same night) is horrific.  I wondered if anyone else had this problem.  I start with sweats and dizziness , then the stomach cramps cause chronic diarrhoea ... I then start to vomit until my body is empty .... this isn't the bad part. After my body is empty I go into a fit like state and cannot move walk talk or anything... the cold sweats start but I'm burning up. The stomach spasms are awful, I have to lie in bed flat with cold wet towels on my head and belly. I cannot speak or move for hours and feel so weak and unstable ..: this lasts all day and I can't eat or drink anything but I don't feel myself for three or four days. I avoid drinking but sometimes it's nice to go out and have some... am I alcohol intolerant??!! Does anyone else have this!?  I obviously stick to gluten free drinks and have a very strict diet! Im a severe case!  Thankyoy  steph 
    • I'm going to contact my primary Dr and see what his take is on this.  I know I can't wait another 4 weeks to go to my gastroenterologist.  Today marks day 23 of diarrhea.  Since switching back to Imodium it has gotten worse.  I think that the other 2 medications, even though I couldn't tolerate them and they didn't stop the diarrhea, at least slowed it down a little.  If my primary has no clue, then I am definitely contacting U of C.  The only thing stopping me is that they are out of network for my insurance plan so it would be more costly. 
    • Spring is cherry blossom season, which means that actual cherries are still far enough off that we'll have to leave their deliciousness ahead, and turn to their canned cousins for this recipe. Turns out, that's not a bad thing. Canned cherries make a tasty cornerstone to this super quick, super-easy no-bake cheesecake. Topped with lovely cherries, this no-bake cheesecake is a contender. Enjoy! View the full article
