What is Wind-Eze
Wind-Eze is an over the counter treatment used to cure, bloating, wind, flatulence, belly pains or different marks related to trapped gas in the innards or intestines.
How should I take Wind-Eze
The recommended dose of Wind-Eze is chewing one tablet/capsule three to four times a day. You should take the medication when you need to relieve symptoms that is preferably after a meal and before going to bed. Do not exceed a maximum of four tablets within 24 hours.
If symptoms persist or worsen, seek medical attention.
How does Wind-Eze work?
Wind-Eze contains an active ingredient known as Simeticone, which is also an anti-foaming agent. Once taken, simeticone offers instant relief by assembling all the trapped small bubbles in your gut to form bigger bubbles. This way, it becomes easier to expel the gas from your body either by burping or passing wind. Wind-Eze is a fast-acting relief against bloating, flatulence, stomach pain and any other symptom with gastrointestinal gas. Win-Eze is not absorbed in the bloodstream.
How long do I take Wind-Eze for before I notice a difference?
Wind-Eze is a fast-acting relief against gastrointestinal gas symptoms. The recommended dose is one tablet four times a day. Hence if you do not see any improvement or symptoms worsen within this timeframe, seek medical assistance from your doctor or pharmacist.
Do not take more than four tablets within 24 hours.
How effective is Wind-Eze?

This provides you immediate relief against bloating, abdominal distension, wind pains, flatulence and any other symptom associated with trapped gas in the stomach or intestines.
Wind-Eze is suitable for adults and children over 12 years.

What is the difference between Wind-Eze and Gas X Extra Strength Soft Gel/ Antratil?
All the above medications address gastrointestinal gas to provide relief from bloating, flatulence, stomach pain and wind.
Both Wind-Eze and Gas X Extra Strength Soft Gel contain simeticone as the active ingredient, although users hail Gas X Extra Strength Soft Gel as the number one reliever against gas, for it offers relief minutes after taking it.
On the other hand, Antratil is a blend of extracts rather than a probiotic. It works by targeting your stomach and killing the bacteria in it. It can be taken daily to maintain a healthy gut or on an occasional basis as you do Wind-Eze.
