The answer...: ....To what will help with a distended abdomen depends entirely on the cause of the distention. Probiotics are helpful with a lot of digestive issues, if you take them regularly. The two meds you mention reduce stomach acid and are unlikely to help with distention. If this is happening often, look to your diet for a solution. This problem is often diet related.
