Tylenol

Does anyone have a problem with Tylenol? I ask because I am having a major itch fit on my thighs today, the likes of which I have not experienced since I was still eating wheat. I also woke up with more new acne this morning. The only thing I consumed yesterday that was out of the ordinary was extra-strength Tylenol caplets (I don't think I've taken an OTC painkiller more than a handful of times since I went gluten-free, actually). But I just looked Tylenol up on the web, and it is reportedly gluten-free. Maybe my body just doesn't like acetaminophen!

They say that they can't guarantee that it is gluten-free so if you are really sensitive then you shouldn't take it, I get stomach problems when I have Tylenol

No--the extra strength caplets are gluten-free

I've never reacted to Tylenol, but I have reacted badly to advil. This was before I was on the gluten-free diet.

I've never had a reaction to Tylenol or Advil. They are on my gluten-free list too but I guess some people just have different reactions to different things.

It should be gluten-free, but you could be reacting to the Tylenol itself. If so, discuss it with your doctor the next time you are in. If you're allergic to it (and that's what the reaction sounds like) you'll want to avoid it, and have it noted in your medical record.

Molly, did they tell you that it wasn't gluten-free when you called? Because I heard that the extra strength caplets were and...I think some infants kind and maybe another. Anyway, did the company tell you this or do you suspect it based on your reactions?

Yeah Tylenol has always given me their absolute guarantee that they were gluten-free on most of their products, they even sent a list, and the extra strength caplets are on it. The above reaction definitley sounds like more of an allergy than a gluten reaction.

I reacted the same way which I do with gluten when I took them. I always took the same ones (which I don't remember because I haven't used them in two years) and was probably taking one of their non-glutenfree products.

They may be glutenfree now.
