Hello,
Welcome to JustAnswer!
Thanks for your question.
Increase gas is usually due to increase swallowing of gas during drinking and increase production of gas in colon from undigested food. You need to do some changes in your diet, life style, and take meds to get rid of it. Avoid foods which are causing increase gas, don't eat/drink too fast, chew the food properly, increase water intake, avoid smoking, cut down fat intake, and increase your daily mobility. At the same time you can take OTC simethicone and see if it helps you.

In most cases, taking care of aggravating factors and life style changes are adequate to manage this symptoms. However, if it does not help, then it is important to visit your doctor for proper evaluation to rule out other gastrointestinal condition can cause gas buildup.

Please let me know if you have any other question.
