It takes some time

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I would consider Isobgol supplement sufficient for now. It does take some time may be few weeks for the digestion to be set on track.

There would be no need for any other medication.

Only if you experience lots of gas then you can take Gelusil or Pepto syrup 10ml after every meal. This will reduce the gas and acidity.

Hope, I answered your query.
