I have a severe sensitivity to glycol. Are there any generics that are glycol free? Is there anyway to check for ingredients?
Yes - hello to a fellow glycol allergy sufferer! It's not often I meet up with another person that is allergic to this dreadful by-product of industrial waste that is in everything around us! You can go to NIH's website pillbox.com - google it and look for the one by NIH. Type in the medication name (that's all you need) and it will show all the different generic & brand manufacturers and their inactive ingredients. You can rule some out this way - if it shows glycols, it's out. If it doesn't you can trust that, you have to research more. Google the manufurer and try to see if you can find the product on their website to look at the prescribing info. That, it seems, you can trust. If all else fails, call the manufacturer and ask to verify the inactive ingredients of their product. Hope this helps! - ElizaJane
