8 posts in this topic

Hello,

Does anybody know off hand if the generic for "Augmentin" - Amox-clav by mfg Geneva is gluten free?

I have done searches here, on the CELIAC@MAELSTROM.STJOHNS.EDU, listserver, called the pharmicist (no help couldn't even give me a phone number for geneva) and searched online for a phone number myself for Geneva. There is a number for Sandoz (not sure if Geneva is their generic subdivision) but even if that is the number I won't be able to call till tomorrow.

This is for my daughter, I just posted yesterday asking about probiotics and if they can help while you are on antibiotics and duhhh wouldn't ya think checking to see if the meds itself is gluten-free ,to have been my first concern. Augghh, hopefully we will catch on.

:rolleyes: Anyways thanks if anybody has any info

Hey Donna,

Thanks soooo much. :D It's pretty bad when you own pharmacists does not have contact info for you, and this was Walgreens.

I googled and googled and came up with nothing for Geneva.

Thanks again.

P.S. I haven't had time yet to respond to the other thread regarding fibromyalgia, I love your post and all your insights about it!!!

I was able to verify that this is indeed gluten free (thanks again for the contact info).

Geneva has been bought by Norvatis. The representative had to verify my meds. since my batch was made by Geneva , she verified that the ingredients for this product is gluten free and will remain gluten free where it is currently being manufactured at through Norvatis.

I called Sandoz on their generic Amox-Clav generic for Augmentin. They said that there are no gluten ingredients but that they do not test for gluten so they cannot say that they are "gluten-free". Interesting change. I'm wondering if that has to do with the government getting more strict on what they can call gluten-free. If I do not repost to this topic it means I did not have a reaction! :)

Bridget.

    • Please share what was so difficult about starting your account.
    • I'm new here so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong forum. But I could use some clarity and input.. So I'll try to make my story brief as possible😀 So about 8 months ago I began itching uncontrollably and after going to the Dr for labs she found my liver enzymes were 5x what they should be and was referred to a gastro Dr.  Gastrointestinal Dr ran multiple scans, blood work over the next 2 months and referred me to teaching hospital with a " tumor board" apparently I had a mass within my bile ducts that was blocking bile from liver. Was given a grim diagnosis of rare cancer and told would be dead within the year. Then had an endoscopy done to get tissue of the mass and for some reason it had partially resolved and was no longer blocking bile duct. At this point they could not find and cancerous cells. So fast forward 3 months I'm still in pain and had another endoscopy and the biopsy taken showed high possibility of celiacs.  The blood work was negative for celiac but after the grim cancerous diagnosis I had been unable to eat for 2 weeks or so and so I'm not sure if that would have skewed the labs?. How could the biopsy show high possibility of celiac?  And had anyone heard of celiac causing inflammation in the bile ducts?  I have been gluten-free for 6 weeks and have been feeling remarkably better pain in the upper right quadrant is less, and migraines ( I have had for my whole life) have lessened.  So all this to say I don't understand celiacs and how to explain it to family. Or how all of a sudden this happens. Ask if anyone can shed any insight I would appreciate it. Blessings   
    • Thank you for taking the time for sharing that info. Don't we have the best disease ever! There's got to be a better way to cut down the scarring. Yes, I've scratched till it bleed. Can't help it. It's like having a bunch of mosquito bites. Yes, only gluten free now. Still have bursts, so probably am being exposed to gluten. Will need to stop dapsone soon. Good luck with your situation.
    • Best Foods or Hellman's on the East Oast is Gluten free.  You can make your own too!  Easy!   http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/mayonnaise-recipe I buy any brand of sugar.  
    • Are you sure you do not have fractures?  I fractured two vertebrae two months after my celiac disease diagnosis DOING NOTHING!!!!   Turns out I have osteoporosis from untreated celiac disease.  😡  Consider a bone scan.
