Norco's....whats in em'?

I've posted here a few times over the past year or so.  I currently take 2-3 5/325 norcos per day and REALLY WANT to quit but I cant due to some chronic pain issues.  The root of my problem..today...is I have something called Celiacs Disease which is a condition wherer your body does not tollerate a substance called gluten.  Gluten is found in everything, ketchup, salad dressing, croutons, bread, beer, pasta, etc.  

If a person has this disease and does not treat it the body will respond in several different ways.  Chronic pain and fatigue are two of the most typical symptoms of this problem. \

My questions is this.  Gluten is often used as a "thickner" in many products, even drugs.  Since we are all specialists in the drug area does anyone know if gluten is used in the production of Lortabs/Norcos?

I told you this last time you asked and the answer is Yes.  It is used in pharma's.  Ask your pharmacist for sure, as some manufactures do and some don't for this very reason.
