Gas can be an embarrassing and uncomfortable problem that often arises at the worst possible time sometimes as a result of certain disorders including irritable bowel syndrome or poor diet. There are ways to address gas that rely on lifestyle changes but some medications can make tackling this problem a little easier.
Certain over-the-counter medications containing simethicone, an anti-foaming agent, are safe and effective for treatment of excessive gas or flatulence. This ingredient is commonly found in a number of brand name products including Gas-X and Mylicon. This over-the-counter product is often effective at decreasing the volume and frequency of gas.
