I am hoping to get a list together of OTC's that are GF and Kosher. If you have any that you have back up info on, please post them here.

PostSubject: Aleve   Thu Feb 07, 2008 4:09 pm

I recieved this reply in my email.

Dear Ms. XXXXXX:


Thank you for contacting Bayer HealthCare regarding ALEVE. We appreciate your
interest in our product.

We do not add any gluten to our products. However, we cannot guarantee that our
products are 100% gluten-free as this product is produced in a facility that
manufactures and/or packages other items which may contain gluten.

Unfortunately, we can not guarantee this product to be kosher due to raw
materials supplied by a variety of vendors.

Comments such as your own help us meet the growing needs of our consumers. I
certainly will share them with our Regulatory, Medical and Marketing departments
for consideration.

Sincerely,

Taren Werkheiser
Consumer Advisor

Just a note.

The more companies we contact, the more our requirements will be made known and the niche for them to fill. As we all know CD is still very little understood and certainly little accomodated in the US, we are a third world nation as far as CD is concerned. So every little bit helps!

Write your favorites companies today, and please share with us any communications you get.

PostSubject: Cold-Eeze   Sat Feb 09, 2008 3:15 pm

With our immune system compromised we easily get or keep colds. I woke up with a sore throat this morning and have had sniffles for quite awhile which took me to the medicine cabinet and an examination of what was in there. I tried to check out Wal-marts brand of this, called Equate lozenges but could not come up with anything concrete. So I had a box of Cold-Eeze in there as well and found this at their site. There is nothing on the box that says this, but this is at their website under FAQ's third page. Wink

Quote :
Nutritional Concerns for COLD-EEZEŽ Lozenges
Does COLD-EEZEŽ contain gluten? COLD-EEZEŽ is a gluten-free product, and safe for people with Celiac disease.

The hecksher on box is the triangle K

Just remember to not take on an empty stomach, or within a half hour either way of drinking any juice.No No

PostSubject: Runny nose? Cough and cold?   Fri Feb 29, 2008 3:58 pm

This hit me all at once yesterday. I haven't had more than a sneeze or two but this drove me crazy and in the market too! So I checked online to find something that would be good for us and found this.

Scot- Tussin

Look at all its qualities


Sugar-Free
Alcohol-Free
Carbohydrate-Free
Dye-Free
Gluten-Free
Ketogens-Free
Lactose-Free
Iodine-Free
and it is also Kosher

What more could you want? Well, it doesn't say organic, but, the more organic we eat of veggies and fruits, the less we'll need this, right? Wink

Check it out, they have three formulas

http://www.scot-tussin.com/

My husband ran up to CVS this morning and bought me some for $6.99 for 4 oz. There is also supposed to be a $1 rebate inside. According to the box, they've been in business since 1956.

And their motto is 'Scot Tussin, striving for perfection'

not a bad motto A- OK

They say they are committed to the often overlooked special needs patient.

Our medicines ( except were indicated) are safe for the typical consumers as well as those with diabetes, celiac sprue, high blood pressure, heart disease and thyroid disease.

Their sweeterner is something called Magnasweet

Magnasweet is Monoammonium Glycyrrhizinate, an extract from licorice root.
Licorice is often used to help health coughs. MAG is a white powder
that is often used as a flavoring agent due to its sweetness.

One should be careful if you have a Salicylate allergy... or an aversion otherwise to licorice. This would cause one nasty reaction! Shocked

Just a note about Scott Tussin. I have been having trouble lately with what at first I thought was the ever present cold. I had been off my vitamins and it took awhile to get back on them to a point I wasn't feeling sick all the time. I was and am taking about 1000-2000 mg Vit c a day plus other vits. But I noticed lately, that I was sneezing quite frequently, like up to 5-6 times, which I never sneezed beyond three times with a cold.

Also I would have this feeling in my nose that something was literally tickeling it insides, like the hairs were lightly touching, no amount of cleaning, blowing, whatnot would alleve this. I finally tried the Scott Tussin and it helped. So when this has happened that is what I did. Until I can get to the doctor to find out what's going on. Anyway. It started on Shabbat when I woke up. I was having coffee and I started to sneeze and my eyes were running and it just wouldn't stop. So I took some of it. I had a corn cake to put something in my stomach. Then about 15 -20 minutes later I remembered I needed to take my heart meds so I did, thinking that with the corn cake I would be ok until I got breakfast ready. Now Shabbat b'fast is easy. We had blueberry cakes I made before, and cantaloupe and cottage cheese with strawberries. I had just finnished putting this on the plates and started to feel a bit woozy. I brought the plates to the table and sat down when it hit me full force. It was aweful. It took a lot of prayer and then I was so warn out I went to bed for like 4 hours ( this is after just getting up and only being up for about 2 hours). And even then when I got up I was very weak and had no energy.

I didn't fully recover until late yesterday. So please be careful to not mix this with another medication at the same time, or within an hour or so.

What do you mean by licorice root? Are you talking anise?
