    How do you find acceptable medications?  I asked my Cardiologist to prescribe a grain-free ace inhibitor and he said he didn’t know which medications would be grain free.  If I could provide him with a list of medications that are grain free, he could then select one.  I then, asked my druggist if any of my medications had grain in them.  The answer was one did.  It was Lisinopril.  The source of grain was “starch” listed as “other” ingredients.  All the ace inhibitors she looked at had the same ingredient.  Now what do I do?

    Dr. Osbourne has used http://www.rxlist.com in one of his videos.  Look under “other ingredients” and that is helpful. You can watch the video he has on medications & gluten.  It is great and very enlightening!!

    Thanks, I’ll do that.

    I tried rxlist.  Other ingredients showed it contained “starch” so no added information there.  I watched Dr. Osbourne’s video and it was very informative but did not help me find a way to identify the ingredients in medications.  Any other suggestions?  What have some of you done in this situation?

    Get with a compounding pharmacist and let him know of your restrictions.  He/she should be able to work with you to produce a medication without fillers or other toxic ingredients.

    All the best,
