An anti-flatulent is a medication or remedy used to relieve or prevent excess gas in the digestive tract, which can cause bloating, discomfort, and flatulence (passing gas). These medications typically work by breaking down gas bubbles in the stomach or intestines, aiding in their expulsion from the body. Some common ingredients found in anti-flatulent medications include simethicone, activated charcoal, and alpha-galactosidase enzymes. Anti-flatulents can be available over-the-counter in various forms such as tablets, capsules, or liquids. They are often taken after meals or as needed to alleviate symptoms of gas and bloating.
