DulcoGas Maximum Strength Anti-Gas Tablets
DulcoGas comes from the trusted makers of Dulcolax laxatives. It’s formulated with simethicone specifically to help alleviate the pain, pressure, and bloating caused by gas. The chewable tablets come in two flavors — wild berry and tangy citrus — and promise relief within minutes.
Recommended for adults, they can be taken as needed after meals and at bedtime. The suggested dose is one to two pills per day, with no more than four to be taken in a 24-hour period. Customers say they do the trick and the chewables work more quickly than other anti-gas pills on the market.
When heartburn and gas hit at the same time, it can be a double whammy. These chews from SoundHealth are formulated to hit back and ease the symptoms of both as they contain both calcium carbonate (an antacid) and simethicone (an anti-gas medication).
They’re recommended for adults and children 12 and older, and one to two chews can be taken every two to four hours as needed (though not more than five chews in 24 hours). Customers say they work quickly, taste good (some compare them to the consistency of Mentos), and the price is hard to beat.
