The best confirmation is to call the company itself. Glutenfreedrugs.com has too many errors in it. It doesn't get updated, you have to be very careful when referring to their website.

CVS Softgel Gas Relief is gluten free, as is Walmart's Equate brand.

Thanks for the replies.

I looked at the gluten free drug list earlier today but all it says is Gas-X so I would consider all are safe, but I have read in different places that some are not.

I tried to call the company the other week but the 800 line goes possibly out of the country so the connection is really bad and it sounded like the person was outside in the wind or something...very strange. My husband was nice and tried to call for me today and he told the person that the connection was bad so the guy spoke loud so he could make out what he was saying. He said that they have not been tested for gluten so there is a possibility they may have gluten in the ingredients.

Hmmmm maybe I will look at the WalMart brand next time we go there, we do not have a CVS anywhere near us. Thank you!

I have read something about Gas-X too, but can't remember what, or where.

Glutenfreedrugs.com are still listing Xanax as gluten-free, and it's not, they never took it off the list. I no longer trust that site.

Some of these companies do have their info lines out of the country. If you do get a line you can hear on, often times you can't understand the person you are talking too.

Walmart states on many of their items if it's gluten free or not.

Deb, are you positive about this?

is there a generic brand of this? Maybe that's some of the confusion I'm finding.

i was researching for a friend who uses it and also on a couple forums and celiac alert (I think) and the consensious was that it was gluten-free...........man it gets so dang confusing.

Guess she'll have to call the company.

I use the soft Gas-X the little green ones. They seem to work for me.

Think i called about them at one point.

i can't keep all this is my head anymore, esp since companies keep changing the ingredients.

thanks Deb, Judy

Yup, Pfizer is the company that said Xanax was gluten free, then later stated they never said it.

I do have a gluten-free generic brand of Xanax. I had to search and search for a gluten-free company...my Xanax (alprazolam) is from Mylan Labs...they will always disclose gluten if it's in their product.

Originally I had a generic from Greenstone Labs, which is a subsidiary of Pfizer, it contained gluten too. I was being glutened all the time, because Pfizer lied.

Thing is, glutenfreedrugs.com state that "Xanax, all forms" is gluten free, and that is a FALSE statement. I do not trust them anymore...I always call for myself. Except now, I have a gluten free pharmicist, it's wonderful!

    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
