i'm not sure mine are...
i've been on doxycycline hyclate since the 29th of december...that's four days now. and for the first time in a long time, i've been back to taking my zofran for nausea. and in some cases, being sick anyway. so i checked it out and the side effects are nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. okay, so that's explainable. but after talking to mom about it, we wondered: does it have gluten in it? so we do a little research - www.glutenfreedrugs.com. if you take medication, have you considered the possibility of it being gluten free or not? i never had. Gluten Free Drugs has a drug list - and you can read it in several different ways, but i chose the alphabetical list. so i checked out my doxycycline...there are three manufacturers that ARE gluten free and have been checked. naturally, the manufacturer on MY generic hasn't been checked, and i'll be darned if i can figure out how to do that. so now i wonder...am i back to being sick because my meds to make me not sick are making me sick? (get that?)
i also double checked my daily meds. my celexa is good. but - and if you have a thyroid disease as well, this is important - synthroid can no longer guarantee a GF status. well, yikes. isn't that the only thyroid drug out there? and i know it doesn't even come in generic. so i'm questioning it. guess i'll be asking the doc when i go back.
what about you? anybody else come across drugs making them sick? i want to thank the people at Gluten Free Drugs for posting this list. it's nice to be able to check my meds against it and, if necessary, make changes.
