Almost every tablet and capsule and even inhaler contain corn based products. (ADM must be Loving it) So is there an easy way to ID if the meds one is on contain Corn based products or is there a way to find alternative to those products? It seems my sons allergy to corn has manifested in a need of Inhaled steroids/albuterol. but the IH steroids/ albuterol both contain corn which force the need for them this over the last 6 years. Very overwhelming, any help welcomed. Corn seems to be in everything.

I do sympathize with your situation and yes corn/corn starch is in almost everything.
The best thing would be to contact the manufacturer and check whether a product has corn/corn starch. Then only can you start looking for an alternative. It might not be easy. Your doctor should be able to help in finding an alternative.
