NOV 14, pill-popping verse: simethicone for abdominal bloating

 

ABDOMINAL BLOATING


Abdominal gas, an incursion?

Belly bloating's not helped by inversion?

Surface tension goes down

And that gas will leave town,

When simethicone helps with dispersion.

Authors' Note: Simethicone (simeticone), a silicon-based product, is the active ingredient in most current over-the-counter remedies to relieve abdominal distension and gaseous bloating. With coalescence of the offending small bubbles, the gas is dispersed by flatulence and belching.
