How does Dulcogas® work?
Simethicone works by causing smaller gas bubbles to combine, creating larger gas bubbles that can be passed more easily and less frequently. Simethicone does not prevent gas bubbles from forming.
What causes gas?
Naturally, our bodies contain gas. However, there are many common causes of additional gas such as eating too fast, and consuming drinks like carbonated beverages or eating indigestible foods. Gas is also a common symptom accompanying constipation.
What foods can cause gas and bloating?
While each person is different, foods associated with increased gas production can include:
- Legumes: beans, peas, peanuts, soy
- Vegetables: broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, corn, lettuce, peppers
- Fruits: apples, apricots, cherries, peaches, pears, plums, prunes
- Other: wheat, oat bran, whole grains
How fast does Dulcogas® work?
Dulcogas® starts to work in minutes. If you have prolonged discomfort, you should consult with your doctor.
When should I take Dulcogas®?
Take Dulcogas® when you begin to feel the pressure, discomfort, and bloating commonly referred to as gas.
How many Dulcogas® Sachets can I take?
Use one or two sachets as needed after meals and at bedtime. Do not exceed 6 sachets in 24 hours (adult dose) unless under the advice and supervision of a doctor. Dulcogas® Sachets are not intended for children below 6 years.
Can I take Dulcogas® if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
