On this podcast episode, I discuss simethicone pharmacology, adverse effects, drug interactions, and much more!
Simethicone is primarily used for anti-gas purposes. It is most often used on an as needed basis for relief of flatulence and bloating associated with gas.
Systemic absorption is minimal with simethicone so the occurrence of any systemic-type side effects at therapeutic doses is low.
Simethicone may interfere with levothyroxine absorption. Timing levothyroxine at least a few hours prior to simethicone should help reduce the significance of this interaction.
