How Can I Find Out If A Rx Is Gluten Free

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just prescribed a new medication. It's generic Zoloft. Sertraline is the name of it. It's mfg. is Lupin. Does anyoen know if this is gluten free and/or how would I go about finding out. The pharmacist had no idea and my doctor said there is no gluten in any RX. Hmmmmmmmm.

Thanks!

MO

I looked on the gluten free drug list and the Sertraline is on there but in says mfg. Greenstone after it. So - now I don't know.

Yeah, I thought it'd be easy to check glutenfreedrugs.com too.

Apparently Greenstone was one of 3 mfgs when it started going generic in 2006.

A thread here from '06-'11 at least doesn't have anyone saying they reacted, tho it looks like Lupin wasn't in the game yet.

I see Lupin mentioned as mfg of OTHER generics, but wow this really sucks for this to be difficult at all!

Wish I could help.

Hey Mo! I would call the company. Sometimes the Pharmacist has the number. The only number I found on thier web site (Lupin) is 1-800-466-1450 . Maybe they can get you the correct number.
