I took gas x for my gas pains, but I also suffer from IBS.

Customer Question
I took gas x...

I took gas x for my gas pains, but I also suffer from IBS. Is it okay to take Alka Seltzer after I’ve taken gas x?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

A couple hours. The pain gets really bad, I feel things churning, and then the pain dissipates for a little bit. And then repeat.

Dear *****ient, you can take it without any problem because both drugs have different effects and do not interact.
You can take it after you've had gas.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
