information for pharmacists about gluten in medications
information about gluten in medicine for pharmacists
Gluten is used in many medications as an excipient, so it is important for people with
celiac disease to check with the manufacturer to be sure that each medication they take
It’s also important for pharmacists to be aware that medications may not work as expected
in people with undiagnosed celiac disease, due to problems with malabsorption.
There are currently NO requirements for labeling gluten or common allergens
found in drug ingredients.
Generic formulations may include different excipients than the brand-name drug.
