I take Prylosec for acid reflux and don't suffer from bloating. I was having terrible bloating constantly. I was advised by my doctor to keep a food diary. It is a pain, but what I discovered was that the older I am getting the more sensitive to food additives and preservatives. Also, I was eating at restaurants often because my hubby and I both work. I have limited my restaurant food intake and prepackaged foods. More fresh fruits, veggies, and cook more at home. I finally got rid of my gas. Hope this helps. :bouncy:

I've been fortunate (so far) to not have a gas problem, even with broccoli, but I started using Beano and even when I eat a big bowl of pinto beans, there's only a small amount of tooting going on. Sometimes I do sound like a little putt putt engine walking through the house, but it doesn't hurt so I just laugh at myself.

I don't know if it would work as good as what you're taking but it might be worth a try. You just take a pill (or two?) before eating gassy foods and it might reduce the amount of gas you have.
