What are Wind-eze Gel Capsules?
If you’re experiencing bloating and stomach pain caused by trapped wind, try Wind-eze Gel Capsules to relieve your discomfort. They contain the active ingredient simeticone, which works by combining the tiny gas bubbles in your stomach into larger bubbles, making them easier to pass without the risk of any embarrassment.
What is the recommended dosage?
Always take Wind-eze Gel Capsules exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. For adults and children aged 12 years and over, take 1 capsule with water 3-4 times daily after meals, or at bedtime if needed. Do not exceed the recommended amount.
How does simeticone relieve trapped wind?
Simeticone is a popular treatment for trapped wind, and it works by combining the tiny gas bubbles in your stomach into larger bubbles, making them easier to pass so they can leave your system and reduce your bloating. Any trapped wind remedy will work best when you make changes to your diet, such as eating more fibre, avoiding food you’re intolerant to, limiting the amount of fizzy drinks you consume, eating slowly and eating small portions often.
What causes trapped wind?
There are many things that can cause trapped wind, like swallowing too much air when eating or talking - this is typically when you’re eating too fast, chewing gum, or drinking something fizzy. Certain foods (beans, cabbage, sprouts and onions, for example) can cause trapped wind as they create gas while your body digests them. Trapped wind can also occur when you consume something you're intolerant to, like milk if you’re lactose intolerant. If you suffer from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), trapped wind may be one of your symptoms.
Are Wind-eze Gel Capsules suitable for children?
Wind-eze Gel Capsules are not suitable for children under the age of 12. If you’re looking for a trapped wind treatment for a child under the age of 12, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice on alternative treatment options.
Are Wind-eze Gel Capsules suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women?
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, you must ask your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice before taking Wind-eze Gel Capsules to ensure that they are the right treatment for you.
When should this product not be used?
Wind-eze Gel Capsules may be unsuitable for certain people. Do not take these capsules if you are allergic to simeticone or any of the other listed ingredients. Do not take these capsules if you use mineral oil (paraffin) based laxatives.
