What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication.

Gas-X Extra Strength Drug Information
Gas-X is used to relieve symptoms of extra gas such as belching, bloating, and feelings of pressure/discomfort in the stomach/gut. Simethicone helps break up gas bubbles in the gut.
How to Use Gas-X
Take Gas-X by mouth, usually 2-4 times a day after meals and at bedtime, or as directed by your doctor. Chew the tablets thoroughly before swallowing. Follow all directions on the product package. If you are uncertain about any of the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist. If you are self-treating with simethicone, the usual maximum amount for adults is 500 milligrams daily. If your condition persists or worsens, or if you think you may have a serious medical problem, seek immediate medical attention.
Before taking simethicone, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Gas-X may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. This medicine may contain aspartame. If you have phenylketonuria (PKU) or any other condition that requires you to restrict your intake of aspartame (or phenylalanine), consult your doctor or pharmacist about using Gas-X safely. This medicine may contain sugar. If you have diabetes, consult your doctor or pharmacist about using Gas-X safely. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant before using Gas-X. It is not known if Gas-X passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you are taking Gas-X on a regular schedule and miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
If you are taking Gas-X under your doctor's direction, your doctor or pharmacist may already be aware of possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for them. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with your doctor or pharmacist first. Tell your doctor of any prescription or nonprescription medications you may take, including any antacids or digestive medications since some combination products may also contain simethicone. Simethicone can decrease the absorption of thyroid medications (such as levothyroxine). If you take thyroid medication, take it at least 4 hours before or after products that contain simethicone. This document does not contain all possible interactions. Therefore, before using Gas-X, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all the products you use. Keep a list of all your medications with you, and share the list with your doctor and pharmacist.
Gas-X Side Effects
What are Gas-X side effects?
Side effects are physical, mental or emotional symptoms which occur in addition to or outside of the desired effect of a therapeutic treatment such as an over-the-counter or prescribed drug or medication. Side effects from Gas-X may occur at the beginning or at the end of treatment and may also depend on the length of time an individual remains on the treatment. Side effects, also known as adverse effects, are generally more likely to occur when starting treatment. Individuals may also experience side effects from Gas-X as a result of an interaction with other medications.
Side Effects of Gas-X
The side effects of Gas-X may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Gas-X. Also, an individual’s state of general physical health and seriousness of the disease or illness as well as an increase or decrease in dosage may lead to side effects. Further, side effects from Gas-X may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.
Prescription drug side effects can be serious and may cause patients to stop the treatment. However, when side effects from the use of a prescription drug, such as Gas-X, do occur a patient should consult their physician. A physician may prescribe an additional treatment in order to control the symptoms or an adjustment in the dosage may be made. In addition, changes to diet, exercise or other lifestyle activities may help to lessen the side effects of Gas-X.
