David Says:

The composition of inactive ingredients can really depend upon each manufacturer of Atorvastatin. Some may or may not contain any gluten, but if you know the marking or imprint on your tablet, I can go ahead and look up a list of these ingredients for you. Any additional details on the pill's physical properties (i.e. shape, color) would also be good to have as well.

Look forward to hearing back from you!

I have celiac disease and diabetes (A1C 5.8) I was diagnosed with high cholesterol with Ldl at 110. Prescribed Lipitor 10mg. Been having celiac flare ups and was wondering if the Lipitor is causing this. So worried about side effects.

Re: K (# 3)

It's not a simple yes or no. Atorvastatin is made by many different companies, each using their own combination of inactive ingredients. Do some research before being so critical. David is completely right in what he said.

To anyone else reading this - if you want to know whether your prescription is gluten free, you can't simply ask if the drug itself is gluten free. You need to be more specific as to exactly which tablets you have (shape, color, inscriptions, ndc code if possible).
