Why does my stomach feel like its been fill with air an I look pregnant? I use windezz/gas-x but that only settles it for a bit?
May be: A number of things beginning with the foods that you eat, alcohol you consume and if you smoke or have asthma, air-swallowing is common. All of these can be a source of excess gas in your diet. I assume you are not pregnant, and this distension doesn't cause any pain, nausea or vomiting. If it does then you should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

I take gas x every day. They told me that I may have gastritis... And if gas x is a drug, isn't it bad every day?
Not necessarily bad: Gasx is simethicone, which works on gas. Not necessarily bad. However, if you have gastritis, you probably need to deal with the acidity as well. Acid buffers or blockers would help the gastritis greatly. Buffers such as antacids like maalox, mylanta, tums, etc work well. Acid blockers like zantac (ranitidine) or Pepcid (histamine blockers) or prilosec/ Prevacid (proton pump inhibitors) are very effective. ...Read more
After eating: Simethicone is an anti-foaming agent that allows gas bubbles to pass more quickly. Simethicone does not prevent formation of gas bubbles. Based on this action, it would be better to take after you eat when symptomatic, as the directions on the package indicate. ...Read more
Yes: However, the next question should be why should you need to do that. If you need something like gas-x or beano you might want to see if you have a food intolerance or allergy causing this and eliminate this food or foods from your diet. Beano helps with beans and cruciferous vegetables and gas x absorbs gas. Common food allergies are dairy, wheat and nuts. Keep a food diary and see what is cause. ...Read more

I used to take gas-x a lot in the past. About several times in a few weeks. I never went over the max. Dose though. Can that be bad for my kidneys?
No: Simethicone is a mixture of polydimethylsiloxane and hydrated silica gel. Anti-foaming agent that decreases the surface tension of gas bubbles, causing them to combine into larger bubbles in the stomach that can be passed more easily. It isn't actually absorbed so you really don't have a systemic effect, hence your kidneys don't have to interact with it b/c it never enters the bloodstream. ...Read more
Decreased pain: Gas build-up in the bowels can make the belly bigger. The ribs line the upper part of the abdomen and can get pushed apart when the "belly blows up". Rib muscles hold the ribs together, so if the ribs are being stretched apart, a strained muscle is likely to hurt. It isn't dangerous to have gas, it can just be more uncomfortable. ...Read more
