Over the Counter Medications
There are several treatments for gas that you can find right in your drugstore. Lactase is an enzyme that can be taken along with milk products in order to digest milk sugar, thereby avoiding gas for those that lack the enzyme in their body. Beano is another digestive enzyme that can be taken in order to reduce the gas caused by eating beans, vegetables, and grains. Simethicone (brand names include Phazyme, Flatulex, Mylicon, Gas-X, and Mylanta Gas) may not help with reducing gas, but it may help in passing gas more easily. Antacids may not help with excess gas. Activated charcoal has not been proven to reduce gas, and should not be taken at the same time as other medications, as there is a risk of reducing their effectiveness.
However, don’t forget that your emotional state of mind has an enormous influence on whether your tinnitus fades into the background or gets worse and worse. The difference is–if you consider tinnitus as a threat to your well-being in any way, it will tend to get worse and never go away. On the other hand, if you do not consider your tinnitus as a threat to your well-being in any way, and thus you treat it as an unimportant background sound, you typically will find that your tinnitus fades into the background and no longer bothers you. And that is one thing over which you have total control. That is another way of saying that whether your tinnitus bothers you or not is mostly up to you.
