NOTE: This list of meds contains my notes based on the listed ingredients about what MAY contain corn. My notes do not constitute medical advice: You need to determine your personal risk based on my comments about possible corn as well as on your own research. It is also important to realize that some medications may not have an available corn-free version, so in some cases you may need to work with your doctors to medicate pre-emptively using steroids and antihistamines to mitigate any possible reactions. This list of meds started with research for an open-heart surgery, but I would like to add to it as people have procedures and need to research new meds. If you need to get a surgical procedure and a med comes up that is not on this list, please email cornallergygirl@gmail.com with your medication and I'll see about adding it here with my comments. If you disagree with or have any corrections please also feel free to mail cornallergygirl@gmail.com with your comments.

PropofolIV sedationEvery preparation of this contains glycerin which is almost definitely corn. Avoid if you can. https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/search.cfm?labeltype=all&query=propofol+&pagesize=20&page=1
15
Midazolam IV sedation - benzodiazepineSeveral versions of this, all by Cantrell, look pretty clean- typically sodium chloride, hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide for inactives. Sometimes edetate sodium. The cleanest I found is just sodium chloride and water. 52533-001-72, 52533-001-71, 52533-001-01https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/archives/fdaDrugInfo.cfm?archiveid=14860

Fentanyl, oral (Fentanyl citrate)anesthesia/sedation/painkillerthis is a citrate, meaning citric acid. avoid if you can. The tablets and lozenges are 100% corny. NDC's given here *only* contain mannitol and not actual corn starch or sucrose. Still corny! Opt for preservative free IV fentanyl if you possibly can so that at least you're only getting the "citrate" part and not any other corn ingredients. 57881-331-04, 57881-331-32, 57881-332-04, 57881-332-32, 57881-333-04, 57881-333-32, 57881-334-04, 57881-334-32, 57881-336-04, 57881-336-32, 57881-338-04, 57881-338-32, 42358-100-32, 42358-200-32, 42358-300-32, 42358-400-32,42358-600-32, 42358-800-32, 42747-221-12, 42747-221-32, 42747-222-12, 42747-222-32,42747-223-12, 42747-223-32, 42747-224-12, 42747-224-32, 42747-226-32, 42747-228-32, 0591-3571-04, 0591-3571-96, 0591-3572-04, 0591-3572-96,0591-3573-04, 0591-3573-96, 0591-3574-04, 0591-3574-96, 0591-3575-04, 0591-3575-96https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/drugInfo.cfm?setid=a2603cb4-a700-420e-aee5-58f6838567ab

Fentanyl, IVanesthesia/sedation/painkillerThe injectable for this is fentanyl citrate. avoid and use the midazolam instead if possible. NDC's for versions that have only the active ingredient given but they are still citric acid based. 52533-024-01, 52533-024-71, 52533-116-75, 52533-026-10, 52533-024-75, 52533-025-75, 52533-024-04, 52533-116-10, 52533-024-45, 52533-024-61, 52533-024-43,0409-1276-03, 0409-1276-32 https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/drugInfo.cfm?setid=a13ae145-5c5e-422b-d0a5-6cf34c1b8262

Ketamine Hydrochloride, Injection solutionGeneral anestheticlots of pretty clean versions here. basically all of them are either only benzethonium chloride for inactive or that plus sodium chloride. I included the Hospira NDC's as that is a well tolerated brand among MCAS people. 0409-2051-05, 0409-2053-10https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/drugInfo.cfm?setid=bb912318-2e22-4469-b0a2-774803ee1bb8

Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) injection
pain medication
All the versions by Cantrell that i could find (there are dozens) contain only sodium hydroxide, hydrochloric acid, sodium chloride, which should hoepfully be pretty corn free. ALL OTHER BRANDS including hospira contain obvious corn derivatives such as citric acid and sucrose. https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/search.cfm?labeltype=all&query=hydromorphone+hcl&pagesize=20&page=1

Cisatracurium Besylate (Nimbex)muslce relaxantThis is an injectable and several preparations contain only benzesulfonic acid and water for inactives. a few contain benzyl alcohol, probably avoid those if possible. 57884-3061-1, 0781-9037-95, 0781-9039-95, 0781-3150-75, 0781-3150-95, 0781-3153-80, 0781-3153-95, 63323-416-05, 63323-417-10, 63323-418-20,0074-4378-24, 0074-4380-79, 0074-4382-91 https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/drugInfo.cfm?setid=777abb3a-5504-439c-9745-c8faeff842a1

Vecuronium bromidemuslce relaxantevery single version of this i found had the same ingredients list, containing mannitol and citric acid both of which are corn ingredients. If there is another muscle relaxant that doesn't have preservatives, that would be much better. https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/search.cfm?labeltype=all&query=Vecuronium+bromide&pagesize=20&page=1
34
Normosol-R InjectionElectrolytesThere is only one manufacturer, hospira, and it contains: sodium chloride, sodium acetate anhydroius, sodium gluconate, potassium chloride, magnesium chloride, water, hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide. the gluconate sounds corny but could be okay. https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/drugInfo.cfm?setid=36e56b56-33c0-49e5-ddab-b55da19cae58
