I was just diagnosed with ciliac and also been diagnosed with acid reflux several years ago and have always taken omeprazole 20 mg capsules manufactured currently by Sandoz, which is a script. I have tired to search to find out if it is gluten free to no avail. Does anybody you know if it is gluten free? If not any substitutes? I need help ASAP as my reflux is starting to come back again. I have been glutin free 3 days now and acid reflux is starting to come back....Many thanks! :(

I emailed sandoz about a prescription I take and got a response within 24 hours. for my prescription they replied and said there are no gluten ingredients. The email to contact they regarding products is easy to find on the website.

Acid reflux can be controled without medication :)

However, i haven't heard of omeprazole having it. Best bet is to call the manufacturer to ask.

I found out and they can't guarantee it--so I must forget this. :( Do you or anyone else know of anything I can take for a hiatial hernia, acid reflux, heartburn. My chest feels like on fire!!

I am not entirely sure how this site works so I may be posting multiple times. I found out omeprazole is not guaranteed by Sandoz. Is there anything else I can take of hiatial hernia, acid reflux, heartburn? My chest feels like on fire. Also still very itchy on my head mostly and some all over and face/. Is there anything I can use to relieve the itchness that is safe? I don't have any open blisters or a rash--just itchy.....Thanks!

Of course they cannot guarantee it. Nobody can. A guarantee creates a legal liability for them in the event they received a contaminated ingredient from a supplier. Even if they test, they have to qualify the statement based on the sensitivity of the test. The may, for example, be able to guarantee < 20 ppm (which is likely actually zero, but cannot be proven).

I have taken several prescriptions from a variety of companies since being gluten free. I have called on every one before I fill them. Every time I get "but we don't promise/guarantee it is gluten free blah blah blah statement." Having previously given similar statements myself working in a call center, we called these CYB statements. Cover Your Butt. Like Peter says, the legal implications of making an absolute guarantee is insane, the best you will get is a general, yes, the drug is in fact gluten free but CYB.

Thanks for the CYB info--might take omeprazole again--after I get some gluten free time under my belt. I'm only recently diagnosed & glutin free 4 days now. Trying to take it "One day at a Time'--but REALLY hard at this point.

    • Pretty sure it's 12 weeks recommended by experts. Good luck to you!
    • Starch is gluten?  Ive been teaching all day and way too tired to make sense of this article.... http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/gluten-starch-same-thing-7317.html
    • I added some onion powder to my dinner today.After eating it i became curious and send an email to manufacturer.They told me its not gluten free they add starch to it.And on package it was saying we dont add anything else:( i dont have symptoms yet but they were selling a range of gluten free products so i remembered like it was gluten free and ugh im so tired of getting glutened by random and useless stuff like this i was doing great for more than a month then this happened im just exteremely sad right now Motivate me for tomorrow guys :((())  
    • Thank you both for the replies. The article is very insightful. Right now I am trying to reason with the thought of being miserable for 4-8 weeks to get a diagnosis. I feel so good right now it seems almost not worth it, but I also need to know if something is wrong and if there are potentially any other digestive system issues. I will likely go on a gluten challenge and deal with the side effects... after all, Thanksgiving is coming up 
    • Cheetah, We all have to make our own health decisions based on our individual circumstances.  There is not any “one size fits all” approach.  ☹️In your daughter’s case, she was asymptomatic.  I also would find it hard to believe that she had celiac disease despite confirmed biopsies and antibodies tests.  I get the denial.  I just had anemia that was disguised by a genetic anemia.  I was shocked at the suggestion of celiac disease.  My hubby had been gluten free for 12 and I knew exactly what the treatment meant — gluten free for life.  A total game changer.   Because we have bought our health insurance for over 20 years, we have lived through the times that I was uninsurable due to my Hashimoto’s, Rosacea and toe nail fungus (yes, that is right).    I never went without, but I could not freely jump from plan  to plan.  My premiums were higher than my hubby’s.  So, we worry that health insurance could change and I would be uninsurable again.  (Did I mention that our annual premium is $24,000?) However, the genetic test can be invaluable but is mostly used to help rule out celiac disease.  There are other genes associated, but they have not been studied well.   “So far, scientists have identified over a dozen possible non-H.L.A. genes that may be associated with celiac disease, but whether these genes actually play a role remains to be seen.”  (Sheila Crowe, now head of the American GI Association).   https://consults.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/01/13/genetic-testing-for-celiac-disease/ The antibodies test, in conjunction with the biopsies is the best means of diagnosing celiac disease to date.  The blood test is the least reliable as there are false positives (rare).    It is hard to dispute villi damage.  Too bad your Aunt did not get a biopsy, but understandably, an endoscopy can be costly if you lack insurance and there are many other reasons, so many are forced to forgo this procedure.   https://www.ueg.eu/education/latest-news/article/article/mistakes-in-coeliac-disease-diagnosis-and-how-to-avoid-them/   It is unfortunate that we must weight the risks and benefits of everything.
