You can shift to Rabeprazole and Itopride tablet instead of Pantaprazole and Domperidone.
You can take Nutroline b plus capsule after food
You also add Pre and Probiotic capsule daily along with smooth muscle relaxant like Dicyclomine.
Everything will be subsided.
Wish you good health

Thanks for posting your query.
With the available described symptoms, it can be concluded that you are suffering from dyspepsia.
When we eat food or drink water , a small amount of wind also enters in the upper gastrointestinal tract and major wind gets relieved by eructation while small amount goes ahead in the lower gastrointestinal tract. Here normal commensal microflora by digestion of food also helps in formation of gas.
If you are getting more than 20 times wind pass then it should be labelled as pathological and cause should be evaluated.
You should take food properly with better chewing.

Excessive flatulence could be due to spoiling of food in stomach and enhances after decreased gastrointestinal motility.
You should also follow few dietary restrictions such as avoid legumes, tomatoes, onion, garlic and citrus fruits.
Take 200 ml of milk only in morning hours.
Avoid putting dough and boiled potatoes in refrigerator.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
