Will gas x cause constipation? The foods that help avoid constipation often cause gas so i'm hoping gas x can just eliminate the gas.

In brief: Not likely

Gas-x (simethicone) basically breaks large gas bubbles into smaller ones that can easily be passed.
Common side effects of this drug are loose bm's & nausea.
