The remedy I have prescribed for stomach and bowel gas forever has been Activated Charcoal - available as tablets or capsules. This absorbs large amounts of gas (which is why it is used in gas masks) and it also deodorizes the gas that remains (which is VERY acceptable). I prescribe them a lot for old people, where eructations and flatulence are a problem. In young folk - your digestion and diet are a MESS and need some firm discipline rather than medicine to get rid of gas. No-one under twenty should have gas in the gut - if they do it is ALL coming from the lousy diet that is in fashion these days.... Talk to your Pharmacist about using Charcoal Tabs - they work well, but you also have to address the causes of your gas - junk food at every meal....
