In brief: Could be normal

Foul belching that smells like that could be a normal variant or related to your diet.
However, there are conditions that can cause this. A gastric beazor (collection of food particles in the stomach) or gastroparesis can produce this problem. You should see your primary care doctor or a gastroenterologist to look into these possibilities.

In brief: Try this

pregabalin is not likely the cause.
Charcoal will not help – by the time it is in your bowels, it will be saturated with gases from above - stomach etc. try vegetables/fiber. Avoid milk. Avoid anything you might be allergic to. Buy good probiotics. Good luck
