It’s that time of year again! I’ve already had a cold this season and now the flu is going around like crazy! I’ve been loading up of vitamin C so I don’t get sick again! I have my bridal shower this weekend and my wedding in a little over a month, so I need to stay healthy!
As my fellow gluten free people know, trying to find out which medicine you can and cannot take when you’re not feeling well is no fun! Unfortunately with Celiac disease, reading labels and researching products is a big part of life!
To help make life a little easier (especially when you’re not feeling well), I’ve put together an updated list of gluten free cold/flu medication.
As always, I am not a doctor so please consult with your doctor or pharmacist before taking medications or for any questions you may have. And remember… when in doubt, go without! 🙂
