I've had some stomach gas for the past 4-5 days and it hasn't gone away. I feel like I'm about to blow up. I've been taking rolaids and it helps a little but not enough to make it go away. Oh yeah, the gas is like burp gas.
Is that like some kind of pill? Does it have any side effects?EDIT: I looked it up, I don't have heart burn, just bad gas. I'm gonna go to the doctor and see what they have to say.
Bad advice, HelmsmaN. Prilosec is for acid reflux (chronic heartburn), not stomach gas. But Rolaids are also used to fix heartburn, not gas, so why would you take them? That's the problem with drug advertising....Rolaids is made from a base, and the stomach contains acid, so when they get together they put out a lot of gas! Taking Rolaids will make the problem worse.Simethicone is sometimes used to treat bowel gas, but I'm not sure if it works for stomach gas. I'd check with a real medical professional.
