Is Levoxyl still gluten free since 2013
1 Reply RSS
Hello, Wondering as I was taking Levoxyl for ten plus years and then in April 2013 had to start with another replacement as it was taken off the market. My question as it is on the market to use now is there any concerns with gluten in the products with the companies changing hands, and would there be any problems with cross contamination in the process? If not I will change what I am taking now even though I believe the company is not making a 75 dose, will take a 50 with a split. Will Pfizer have the 75 strength back on the market in the future? Thank~you for your response, Dusty ## Hi Dusty, According to Pfizer, Levoxyl (Levothyroxine Sodium) tablets contain the following list of inactive ingredients: Microcrystalline cellulose + croscarmellose sodium + magnesium stearate + calcium s... ...

AMLODIPINE mfg Qualitest gluten free?
1 Reply RSS
is AMLODIPINE mfg Qualitest gluten free? ## Based on my research, each tablet of Amlodipine besylate manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals contains the following inactive ingredients: dibasic calcium phosphate anhydrous, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, and sodium starch glycolate. Unfortunately "sodium starch glycolate" is considered to be gluten and toxic to those who have severe cases of Celiac disease. This particular filler is common in many medications. So if you haven't already done so, I would probably make your doctor and pharmacist aware of your intolerance before filling any future prescriptions. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Amlodipine Details I hope this helps! ...

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.
