Hi, I can help you with your question today. How long has he been having this problem? We can definitely work on getting rid of the gas now, but it isn't normal for him to have repeat episodes of gas like this.
Expert:  brisadog replied 2 years ago.
Gas-X (simethecone) is not absorbed systemically, so it cannot be overdosed. It is ok to repeat the dose as often as you need to keep him comfortable. Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.
