Hi edb,

From what I could gather, Allopurinol from Qualitest contains the following inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose and sodium starch glycolate.

Unfortunately, "sodium starch glycolate" is heavily regarded as a questionable substance for those with a gluten intolerance; since it is derived from starch. So I personally wouldn't recommend taking it without your doctor's prior consensus.

You can learn more about this drug on the page for Allopurinol Details

I hope this helps!

I got a new script of Allopurinol 300mg by Accord and need to know if it's gluten free? I have been taking another manufacturer's version for years and had no problem. I am concerned with this new medicine being gluten free.
