inert ingredients in meds


There's a lady who asked about the possibility of wheat products being in a drug her son was taking over on the gluten free forum. I got to wondering about whether drug companies are required to release lists of ALL ingredients. I found this- Looks like, yes, they are, but you have to hunt to find them. I tried online with little success, maybe you have to know where to look, but they are apparently supposed to be listed in the drug insert leaflets. And I'm betting a pharmacist/chemist would be able to find out. With people here sensitive to things that trigger RLS, I thought this might be helpful.

the one that causes many issues particulary to People prone to gout is Magnesium sterate used as a filler
