Pepto-Bismol, Gas-X and Ovol for digestive issues with Mac and Cheese
Patient : I am generally in good health but whenever I eat mac and cheese (my wife uses 3 diff kinds of cheese plus butter and cream!), I get bloated and gassy. Is there anything I can do to reduce this feeling?

If you are unwilling to or unable to avoid the ingredient, over the counter medications such as Pepto-Bismol, Gas-X and Ovol may provide some relief.
