Unless I was desperate I would not use the phospho soda. It is ugly. There are other laxatives on the market which can do a pretty complete job without resorting to that. Talk to the pharmacist and maybe they can come up with something. I take a couple Dulcolax when I get that bad. I think it calls for 2 or 3 but at most I take 2. 3 would probably really clean you out.
As for the Gas-x not working. You might try a higher Simethicone mg like Phazyme or the store brand. I take it right after I eat now and it helps a lot with the gas trapping which is a big problem with me.
