Sources of gluten in pills include any starch ingredient (including "pregelatinized starch" and "sodium starch glycolate") not labeled as coming from a gluten-free source (corn, potatoes, tapioca). Other ingredients that might come from wheat or barley include (but are not limited to) dextrates, dextrins, dextri-maltose, and maltodextrin.
Lactose is commonly seen as lactose (hydrous or anhydrous) or lactose monohydrate.
The Propranolol Hydrochloride 60 mg pill manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals lists the following excipients:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
FD&C Blue No. 1
FD&C Red No. 40
which should make it both gluten and lactose free. Most other similar pills contain lactose.
