the information packet should say, or you can search the internet, or look on the label, or call the pharmacist.

Hello, Everyone! I am brand new to this site and am becoming increasingly frustrated with the medical providers that have treated me over more than the last decade. I am on a host of medications and wonder whether the binders/fillers, gluten, sulfites, are the culprit of my feelings of malaise.

I am starting to think that I have Celiac's Disease, allergies or am gluten intolerant. My symptoms include becoming activated on psychotropic meds, becoming lethargic and having muscle and joint pain on the family of statan meds, Armour Thyroid, loss of hair, dry patches on face, severe weight gain, difficulty breathing, reflux, etc. After drinking Merlot on two occasions, my soles of my feet were on fire. After taking alpha lipoid acid one day, I was itching from head to toe.

I have an appointment with, both, an allergist and a gastrointestinal doctor.

If anyone can offer any input, I would greatly appreciate it.

Sincerely,

Frustrated65
