Antigas medications are used to relieve the symptoms of excessive gas, including discomfort or pain from bloating, fullness, or pressure. Some like simethicone (Gas-X) work by reducing the surface tension of gas bubbles in the digestive tract, which allows them to combine into larger bubbles that can be more easily passed. These do not prevent gas. Others like alpha-galactosidase (Beano) are intended to reduce gas production after eating.
