Comment:
Although it is physically easy to swallow pills, I felt taking three before a meal was a little excessive. That's a total of almost 10 pills a day to avoid gas and bloating if you use it before each meal. The pills were not only ineffective in keeping my flatulence to a minimum, it was worse and smelled awful. I was so embarrassed in front of friends and family. Like many, I tried Beano one mo ...
