Medicines or Vitamins That Can Cause Gas, Bloating, or Burping

Many nonprescription and prescription medicines and supplements can cause gas and bloating. A few examples are:

If you think that your gas, burping, or bloating may be caused by a medicine or supplement:

  • Call the doctor who prescribed the medicine before you take the next dose to find out if you should stop taking the medicine or take a different one. An appointment may not be needed.
  • If you are taking a medicine or supplement that was not prescribed by a doctor, stop taking it. Call your doctor if you feel that you need to continue taking the medicine or need help controlling your symptoms.
