Gluten-free Pain Relievers

Wondering if anyone could remind me (I'm sure it has come up before) if Tylenol or Advil are gluten-free? And if there are other pain relievers that might be?

Thank you.

Hi Lisa :D

The two that I use are Tylenol Extra Strength Caplets and Extra Strength Bufferin. (the regular-strength Bufferin was not safe the last time I checked)

I don't know about Advil, it upsets my stomach.

Hi Michael,

V-8 is gluten free, but I sure would not want to drink it if I had the flu. It would be a little bit heavy. Try some clear liquids such as 7-up, apple juice, ginger ale. All Gatorades are gluten free and so is Propel water.

We wish Lisa a speedy recovery.

i called Wyeth in January, and they confirmed that all Advil pain relievers are gluten free (also Advil Cold & Sinus). i play competitive volleyball and take Advil regularly only when I am playing to keep my ailing shoulder from tightening up.... and i've never had a problem.

I wanted to add--I'm just getting over the flu, and one of the worst parts for me was the cough which seems to be hanging around forever. I used Robitussin Honey Lemon Cough Drops and Robitussin DM Cough Syrup.

I'm not a fan of cold meds normally, but it became necessary to be able to sleep.

Just in case ;)

im scared of the corn starch thats in all of these products as corn gluten acts just as wheat barley or rye gluten forms do...does anyone know of any otc or RX pain relievers that are also freeof corn?

This is an almost 5 year old thread, any product info may be outdated.

Corn is not part of the gluten that Celiacs must avoid. Some people, with Celiac and without, might have a problem with corn, just as they could have a problem with soy or rice or strawberries...

Mark, if you can't tolerate corn, I think you can find some asperin that doesn't have corn starch, or go to your health food store and buy some willow bark capsules. I myself am highly senstive to salicylates and cannot take asperin nor Advil, nor Aleve. When my corn sensitivity was severe, I had to have Tylenol made at a compounding pharmacy. I can now tolerate corn starch. You might be able to too, as corn starch is so highly processed the protein (which is what we react to) is no longer in it. I still can't eat whole corn or cornmeal, and I haven't even THOUGHT of trying corn oil or corn syrup, but corn starch is OK. :)

    • I'm in the Houston area so I'm assuming there are plenty of specialists around, though finding one that accepts my insurance might be hard. This might sound dumb, but do I search for a celiac specialist?? I'm so new to this and want to feel confident in what is/isn't wrong with my daughter. I'm with you on trusting the specialist to know the current research.
    • Hi VB Thats sounds like a good plan. Would it help to know that a frustrating experience in seeking diagnosis isn't unusual With your IGG result I'm sure a part of you is still wondering if they are right to exclude celiac. I know just how you feel as I too had a negative biopsy, but by then a gluten challenge had already established how severely it affected me. So I was convinced I would be found to be celiac and in a funny way disappointed not to get the 'official' stamp of approval.  Testing isnt perfect, you've already learned of the incomplete celiac tests offered by some organisations and the biopsy itself can only see so much. If you react positively to the gluten free diet it may mean you're celiac but not yet showing damage in a place they've checked, or it may be that you're non celiac gluten sensitive, which is a label that for a different but perhaps related condition which has only recently been recognised and for which research is still very much underway. We may not be able to say which but the good news is all of your symptoms: were also mine and they all resolved with the gluten free diet. So don't despair, you may still have found your answer, it just may be a bit wordier than celiac! Keep a journal when you're on the diet, it may help you track down your own answers.  Best of luck!
    • Run to the nearest celiac disease specialty center if you can. Especially with conflicting doc opinions. Where do you live? Honestly, I test positive to only the DGP and the newest research on its specificity is a mixed bag. My recent scope did not show "active" celiac disease but only a slight increase in IELs.   I am waiting for my post biopsy appointment with the Celiac specialist next month. But I've been through a couple of GI'S locally and honestly I  feel it was definitely worth going to a specialist. Especially when you have some positive blood work but a normal biopsy the doctors really go back and Forth on diagnosis and never really know for certain.  Unfortunately given the above I just said I probably still do not know for certain. Sigh. But I trust the specialist to be at the top of his game on the research  and at least I can feel confident and comfortable in what his opinion may be next month.
    • That's a great list with such great info!  Do you eat at Shucks?
    • I just got a call from the Kaiser GI department. The doctor who performed the endoscopy was supposed to call me with the results and instead the receptionist did. She said "Dr. X says your biopsy was normal and you do not have celiac disease." Word for word, that's it! So not only did I not get to talk to her the day of my procedure, but not at all! They are printing copy of the biopsy pathology report for me and I'll get it tomorrow. I want to see if it says how many samples they took. At this point, I still feel like crap, still have symptoms and I'm going to try a gluten-free diet to see how I improve, get blood tests again eventually.
