I have had problems getting rid of trapped gas and have been very bloated as a result. I notice if I take 3 Beano pills with each gas-forming meal, there is a significant reduction in gas and bloating, although it is not completely relieved. It's too expensive to take all the time, but it does help a little. Has anyone else had any success with Beano or any other similar product?

I take one kyo-Dophilus pill with each meal for my bloating. I think it helps but not completely. I've heard so much about beano that I might see which works better. I've also read on the boards that charcoal pills work for some.

I too use beano. I get terrible gas pains, pressure, & bloating from so many foods, that I have tried numerous things. Like you, Beano has not "cured" my gas problem but has made a significant reduction in the amount of gas. I use it every day because it helps me get through the second half of the work day without any embarassing results. So anything that improves my comfort level is a success.

I had no luck with Beano. Couldn't tell that I had taken anything at all. I'm glad it works for some people, but it didn't work for me.

I've tried several things for my gas and bloating. Most barely help at all, like Gas-X. Beano is only intended to help with gas-causing foods, like beans, peas & other veggies...The best thing for gas & bloating is Activated Charcoal. It's sold as either capsules or tablets in most drugstores. You take 2 capsules right after a meal, and it gets rid of most of the gas. It's also natural and totally harmless. And it's relatively cheap too, you get 100 capsules for around $6, and that lasts for a while.That's the best thing that worked for me so far

I don't use Beano, but a different one with the same active ingredient. It's called Digest Support by Natrol. I believe it helps gas too.

Hi! I have IBS-C and bad bloating and gas. I take Beano, Digestant Enzyme (from GNC), and Creon with every meal. I can't believe the difference! I have put on some weight and have less gas and bloating.
