Brief Answer: Detailed answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. Increased flatulence occurs when the digestion is abnormal ( maldigestion/malabsorption). There are many different causes for malabsorption. But one important cause in infection. So for relief from increased flatulence you need to take digestive enzymes and probiotics. The medication simethicone also provides relief from increased flatulence. You can discuss with your doctor about these medications and ask for a prescription. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
