... polyethylene glycol or macrogol? I am allergic to these and need to find a solution
Hi, Jessica! I think your pharmacist is the answer. He/she should have access the Physicians Desk Reference which lists all inert/inactive ingredients or to sales reps who visit touting their products. He/she may even have the PDR Generics online which would make it even easier.
But beware of any generic not manufactured in the US or UK as the ingredients are often cloudy or missing altogether,
Good luck, WCV
Jessica; Sorry looked at 6 different ones and they all have it, I would do what WcV said and see if you have any luck. and this is what I found from the FDA site.I dought very much that there is going to be one the doctor may have to find something else. Chuck1957 ((((FDA) generally regarded as safe list (not to be confused with ethylene glycol, which is extremely toxic if ingested). According the FDA, as a food additive, propylene glycol is metabolized in the body and is used as a normal carbohydrate source. Long-term use and substantial quantities of propylene glycol (up to five percent of the total food intake) can be consumed without causing toxicity. There is no evidence in the available information on propylene glycol that demonstrates, or suggests a hazard to the public when they are used at levels that are now current or might reasonably be expected in the future.
