Does Levoxyl Cause Gluten Allergy?

My doctor wants to start me on a thyroid medication. I have a gluten allergy and I tend to be allergic to any generic medication due to the fillers. The best medication brand name Trisant(?) is exceptionally expensive. What about Levoxyl as a generic. Im looking for the least amount of fillers.

The generic would not trigger a gluten allergy. The fillers are starch and not the protein that triggers the allergy. Furthermore the starch is quite purified.
