Apparently, it is not the only drug which eliminates the increased gas generation in intestines. To what drug to give preference?

What is Espumizan or Bobotik better?

Drug Bobotik contains the same active ingredient. Feature of drugs on the basis of a simetikon that they do not influence work of a gastrointestinal tract is not soaked up and marked out in an invariable look. In case of long gripes at children the best decision are drugs on this basis. The above-stated means differ in the content of active ingredient in 1 ml — 66 mg (Bobotik) and 40 mg (Espumizan), proceeding from it efficiency of the first is more.

Sab Simpleks — also means on the basis of a simetikon. Judging by a dosage (this drug in 1 ml contains 69,19 mg of a simetikon) it is possible to assume that efficiency will be higher.

Meteospazmil or Espumizan — what is better?

Meteospazmil is the combined drug containing not only simetikon, but also a myotropic spasmolysant alverin which reduces a tone of muscles of intestines. Therefore eliminates the eructation, nausea, gripes and abdominal pains connected with the increased gas generation. Taking into account it, and also in view of that the maintenance of a simetikon in 1 capsule much more (300 mg), it is possible to draw a conclusion that this drug is more effective. However, adults can only apply it and no more than 4 weeks, allergic reactions are possible, it is not recommended to apply during pregnancy. Producer Laboratoires MAYOLY-SPINDLER (France).

What is Espumizan or Bebikalm better?

Bebikalm — the dietary supplement consisting of essential oils: anisic, dill, mint. It is intended for children from the first days of life. Renders the carminative, spasmolytic, calming, antibacterial action. Apparently, the structure differs. The emulsion should be prepared, having added to 15 ml of mix of essential oils of boiled water to the mark specified on a bottle and to store it in the refrigerator. In a set the pipette doser is applied. Children of the first year of life from a spoon are given 10 drops before each feeding (even if them 10 and more). It is impossible to add an emulsion to a small bottle with mix as the child can refuse food because of the expressed smell. It is necessary to begin 2-3 drops and to observe a condition of the child. The summary contains warnings that emergence of rash and itch is possible. About this dietary supplement different: helps someone, someone considers it useless. From responses it is possible to draw a conclusion that drug needs to be given it is long (month) even if gripes and swelling stopped. In that case drops give not in each feeding.

Whether pregnant women can use this drug? The instruction provides drug use by pregnant women and the feeding women. Drug is non-toxical, safe and admissible to use on any duration of gestation as active ingredient has no systemic action. The dosage and frequency rate of reception do not differ from the general recommendations about reception — for fight against a meteorism accept 2 capsules of 4-5 times a day. Practice shows that drug is transferred well and no negative phenomena are noted. If you are guarded nevertheless by existence in capsules of dyes, and you are inclined to allergic reactions, apply folk remedies (broth of seeds of fennel and fennel).
