I have been taking Gas-X for quite some time. The straight simethicone version, not the one with any peppermint extract/oil. I actually have it listed with my medications for hospital admissions, which have been far too many of late. Not one doctor has blinked an eye. Also, it is what my daughter's pediatrician told me to give her (in liquid, drop form) when she was a baby and colicky. I think it is a rather benign medication. It really just "pops" the bubbles. But you could give your doctor's office a call just to verify, or check the next time you have an appointment.
