Default Fluticasone Nasal Spray - Not GF

Just received this notification this afternoon.

"According to Par Pharm, Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray is no longer GF.

2 inactive ingredients, now contain wheat."

If anyone is using, thought you might like to know.

Come on! Most of your sense of taste is in your sense of smell. I want my nasal sprays to taste good!

Thanks for the headsup, even though I never use the stuff. Going dairy-free pretty much took care of any snot-nose problems I had.

What about the Asthma inhaler - Flovent? Is that GF still? I need to know because my severely wheat-allergic hubby is now using Flovent and he has been having symptoms that may or may not be related to the medication.

Thanks,

Razzle,

I just checked the ClanThompson Drug List.
They list Flovent as unknown. Company says that they can't guarantee against cross contamination,but that there are not any gluten containing ingredients in the medication. This list was dated 12/2006.

Has your husband discussed his symptoms with his doctor? There may be other medications that can be prescribed.
