I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,bloating,some sort of indigestion/heartburn can be caused due to mild viral infection.

You should try OTC Simethicone.

You can take metamucil,yogurt,banana.

You can take extra 0.25 mg after 2 hours from your last dose of xanax in case of severe anxiety,restlessness,sleeplessness.

However it's good to avoid frequent use of xanax extra dose.

You should eat a bland diet.

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

Hope this helps.
