I take Mintacin, a natural anti-gas that contains simethicone and peppermint oil. Lately I've had enough gas that I had to take a dose of 2 capsules once or twice a day. I'm hoping that's because I went back on the metamucil twice a day regimen last week - my C had come back again. I also take Acidophilus Plus, with a. and bifidobacteria. I'm increasing that from once a day to twice. It also helps prevent yeast infections.I take pepcid for occasional indigestion. If I have a bad flare-up I take previcid 30mg and bentyl 10mg as needed. I try not to take bentyl for more than a day or 2 because it usually leads to C.So far I can prevent flare-ups by avoiding my trigger foods - fruits, sugars, onions.
