Hello,

Viberzi (Eluxadoline) drug is used to treat irritable bowel syndrome associated with diarrhea. It works directly in your intestines to slow the movement of food during digestion.

There's no documented evidence of any harmful effects if it is taken by a person with gluten and lactose intolerance. Hence it can be taken safely while suffering from gluten and lactose intolerance.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Taher Ali
