I have celiac disease and I just refilled a prescription for Oxycodone 5mg Tabs. My pharmacy switched manufacturers from QLT to SUN Pharmaceuticals (the site says the generic is made by Caraco Pharmaceutical. I took one and 3 hours later I'm having gluten-like pain. The Sun-Caraco site lists the inactive ingredients as: anhydrous lactose, colloidal silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, pregelatinized starch, and sodium starch glycolate. Does anybody know if the pregelatinized starch, and sodium starch glycolate they use has gluten in it-- (wheat based rather than corn, or potato based)?

Sun Pharmaceutical Oxycodone Tab 5mg does contain trace amounts of gluten measured at 100 parts per million. I called Curaco pharmaceutical--who makes Oxycocone 5mg Tabs for Sun and they informed me that although microcrystalline cellulose, pregelatinized starch is made from cornstarch, there is a possiblity of cross-contamination as the use the same machines to mix wheat based starches. They clean the machines in between batches, and it is tested down to 100ppm. To be considered gluten free it must be below 20ppm and I am a celiac and must be super sensitive as it cause my intestines to hurt.
