Properties:

Physiologically simeticone is extremely inert, and therefore it will not be pharmacologically active. It works by altering the elasticity of interfaces of bubbles in the gastrointestinal tract. The gas bubbles are thus broken down or coalesced and in this form gas is more easily eliminated through eructation or passing flatus.


Indications:
