Will Beano help prevent gas caused by medication, rather than food?

Simethicone is not working. I'm desperate. :(

  • No, Beano won't help. Actually it's used to break down the sugar in starchy foods.
    I don't have a clue what you're taking but most gas is caused by our lifestyle, not by the meds we take.
    But, you could try Activated Charcoal ( Charcoal tablets), which can be found in most drug stores where you'll find the Stomach meds.

    Another thing you could do, get a recommendation from a pharmacist.
