My friend has celiac disease and breast cancer. Xeloda is the recommended treatment. Is Xeloda gluten-free?
12 Jan 2012
XELODA (capecitabine) include: anhydrous lactose, croscarmellose sodium, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate and purified water. The peach or light peach film coating contains hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, talc, titanium dioxide, and synthetic yellow and red iron oxides. So your friend should be fine.
