I was looking at some posts and am a little confused on which of the Gas-X's are Gluten Free.

I read more that the Soft Gels were so I got a box today.

Gas-X Softgels Extra Stength -- Antigas - Simethicone 125mg

Active Ingredient: Simethicone 125mg

Inactive Ingredients: D&C yellow 10, FD&C blue 1, FD&C red 40, gelatin, glycerin, hypromellose, peppermint oil, purified water, sorbitol, titamium dioxide.

Thank you very much!

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!

    • Hello!  When I find myself up at odd hours, I put on this celiac disease Mozart for Meditation... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VFQ58U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516086445&sr=8-1&pi=SX350_PI_PJPrime-Sash-Extra-Large-2017,TopLeft,0,0_AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=mozart+for+meditation+celiac disease And I get out my dot to dot book, like one of these for adults.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_0_5?k=dot+to+dot+books+for+adults&sprefix=dot+t&crid=2B42N4PRIT56H Sometimes I knit mindless objects such as hats, washcloths or socks.  Knitting has a soothing rhythm to it and is easy to learn... Or I read a book about knitting and life... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1603420622/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087016&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=McPhee+knitting&dpPl=1&dpID=51fHYy2xXsL&ref=plSrch Or a knitting mystery.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001LRLJUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087587&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=knitting+mysteries&dpPl=1&dpID=51z43F8UuuL&ref=plSrch Knitting is really easy to learn.  I find it soothing to work with natural fibers, organic cotton for washcloths or luscious alpaca for socks...  But I find it inadvisable to shop online in the wee hours...  😸 I've got way too much yarn now...hee hee hee...  besides, the light from electronic devices keeps your brain awake longer.... Hope this helps.... Knitty Kitty  
    • My only symptom was slight nausea. Lasted 6 months before it started to only happen if I ate too much food in a sitting. I would eat simple, bland foods and eat 6 small meals instead of three big ones.
    • I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet includes beef, but if it doesn't there's a reason for you.   Zinc and Geographic Tongue
    • I was in your same boat when I was diagnosed. Terribly fearful of cancer and all the damage I unknowingly had done. I don’t cheat, but I’m not as good as I need to be at restaurants (I only order off gluten-free menus but I don’t talk to managers like I should, etc) and I eat out once a week with never having symptoms. My main symptom is absolute, complete brain fog. I am truly not the person I used to be. I’ve always had anxiety, so that wasn’t any worse, but I hate to say this about myself but i got “dumb”. It was my first week in nursing school when I was diagnosed. What a great time, huh? I had to stay at school until midnight-2am 4 nights a week just to try to focus and control this brain fog. I used to be smart, quick witted, and very present in the moment. I know life changes, but my life is busy yet very peaceful and I struggle with this daily. I can’t comprehend medical concepts quickly like before and it’s very depressing. I also have a pretty good diet but have weighed 165 (I’m 5’4”) for three years with doing cardio, training for marathons,  etc..nothing gets this weight off (have had thyroid issues since age 7). Anyways. You are not alone. My doctor diagnosed me 5 years ago and told me to stay gluten free and I never saw him again! No follow-ups... I had no clue I had to! Anyways, I have an appointment upcoming as well.  Best of luck to you ❤️
