Hello lybrate user. Gas trouble is due to irregular diet habits. You can take the help of allopathic med. For emergency, but not on regular basis. Taking these medicines for long time have definitely many side effects. So better you try to take healthy meals at regular time. Don't skip meals or replace it with junk foods. Take aprox 10 - 12 glasses of water per day. Even after following these things if you are suffering a lot of gas trouble you can take help of homoeopathic med. Puls 30 / 2 globs x 3 times a day / 15 day.
