all in all I seem to be a little better, though I was better the first month, now I seem to be having lots of bloating, that gets worse as the day goes on, my belly grumbles and I also have more gas than ever. gas x helps a little but not enough.
any ideas to help this? do you get this too?
I wonder if the citrucel is making it worse, though I've been taking it for about 7 months
thanks. Betty

I used to take Revitalx powder supplement for my bloating and gas. Worked like a charm. I still use it once in a while. I buy it at Whole Foods.

yup.....I am also on generic prilosec am and pm for gastritis and LARGE hiatal hernia.

I only use Zantac when I really need it.

Hope that will help you. I hate the bloating, I never thought I would get excited about pooting. :blink:

Is your Gas X gluten free? Here's the info I have on Gas X from April 2005:

GasX (Novartis) (800.452.0511) (v?=07/02)
Softgels (gluten-free, contains corn and maltodextrin)
Chewable Tablets (NOT gluten-free)

It looks like the chewables are NOT gluten free. I wonder if that's part of the problem.

I've been using Phazyme on the advice of my GI. The softgels are gluten-free. The fast dissolve tablets are not.

Have you changed your diet since your gastritis diagnosis? Gastritis can often be greatly helped by elminating offending foods. What gas-x were you taking? Do you ever have periods of relief? An option would be to keep a food/symptom journal and do a rotation diet to ck for a specific food or ingredient that might be causing your symptoms.

Sorry you are not feeling well! It could just be your body is still healing. I know that I have had some weeks like that where I couldn't pinpoint what the issue was and then the next week was better. For what it is worth, my old gastro told me that Gas X was worthless for intestinal gas....so maybe that is why you aren't getting total relief? Are you using soy to supplement for the dairy? I found that I can't do soy now either and get the same symptoms (gas/bloating) that I did with the lactose/dairy.

Hope you feel better soon.

Dragging up a really old post. Anyone else frustrated with the new system and lack of search options?
Anyway, just wondering if anyone has info more recent about whether any of these are still gluten-free? Thanks!
BTW I take phazyme softgels, but don't always feel like they work enough. Maybe I should take 2?

I used to take Revitalx powder supplement for my bloating and gas. Worked like a charm. I still use it once in a while. I buy it at Whole Foods.
