Thanks for the query

Culapton has simethicone which is used to reduce the bloating. I suggest you give it for 7 days before meals and then use it only when there is pain. I also suggest you use an anti gastric syrup like lansoprazole before meals for a week as well as an add on to Cuplaton. Please approach your pediatrician with my suggestion

I wish her good health and a speedy recovery
