Wind-Eze 30 Chewable Tablets

Wind-Eze is a popular over-the-counter medication for the relief of trapped wind. Trapped wind is a common condition, but it can cause a fair amount of discomfort for those experiencing it.


It contains the ingredient simeticone, which works to merge small gas bubbles into larger ones and make them easier to pass. These bubbles are found in the stomach and the intestines. Wind-eze also contains peppermint flavouring, which might help to relieve some discomfort due to peppermint being a natural anti-spasmodic.



Prices start from £12.99 for 30 tablets

What is Wind-eze?

Wind-eze is a branded medicine that can be bought in pharmacies and supermarkets for the treatment of trapped wind.

    Trapped wind can cause symptoms such as:

  • Bloating
  • Burping
  • Abdominal pain
  • Flatulence

Wind-eze contains simeticone, an anti-foaming agent. It works in your body by making small gas bubbles in the stomach and intestines merge into larger bubbles, which are easier to pass.

Most people pass wind around 5-15 times a day, but you’ll know what is normal for you. Wind-eze should help your body to resume its natural pattern of flatulence.

Can I take Wind-eze?

Wind-Eze can be used by most people, hence why it’s available in supermarkets and pharmacies without a prescription from a doctor. The only people that should avoid the medication completely are those that are allergic to any of the ingredients in Wind-Eze, and if you use mineral oil-based laxatives (including paraffin).

If you have an intolerance to some sugars, you should talk to your local pharmacist about whether Wind-Eze is suitable for you, as it contains some sugars. Depending on the severity of the intolerance, you may still be able to take it at the same dosage or a reduced amount to other people.

Does Wind-eze interact with any medications?

Wind-eze is only known to have one interaction, and that is the hypothyroidism treatment, levothyroxine. If Wind-Eze is taken with this medication, it might mean that less of the levothyroxine is absorbed by your body, potentially making the treatment less effective. If you take levothyroxine and are also planning to use Wind-eze, you should inform your doctor of your intentions. It might be the case that you’re still able to use Wind-eze with a slightly increased dose of levothyroxine. Alternatively, your doctor might suggest another treatment for your trapped wind.

What are the side effects of Wind-eze?

Wind-eze does have the potential to cause side effects despite the fact that it’s so widely available. The most critical side effect you should be aware of is an allergic reaction, and the symptoms of this are:

  • Skin rash
  • Itching
  • Swelling of the face
  • Swelling of the tongue
  • Swelling of the throat
  • Difficulty breathing

If you experience any of the above symptoms after taking Wind-Eze, you should get emergency help. Ring 999 and tell the operator that you might be experiencing anaphylaxis. If these symptoms aren’t promptly treated, depending on the severity of the reaction, it could be fatal.

Some of the less serious side effects include:

  • Stomach upset
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhoea
  • Constipation

If the side effects bother you more than the original trapped wind, you should stop taking the medication. However, if they’re only mild and you’re feeling relief of your trapped wind symptoms, it should be safe to continue with the tablets.

What are the ingredients of Wind-eze?

Wind-eze contains the following ingredients:

  • 125mg simeticone
  • Starch
  • Sorbitol
  • Tribasic calcium phosphate
  • Citric acid
  • Talc
  • Peppermint flavour
  • Non-pareil seeds

If you have any intolerances or allergies and you aren’t sure whether you can take Wind-eze, you should write a list of what you can’t have and take it into your local pharmacy. They should be able to tell you whether it’s safe for you to take Wind-eze. In some cases, with mild intolerances, you might be advised to take a lower dose or fewer pills throughout the day.

The peppermint flavouring used in Wind-eze might also help to reduce your symptoms, as peppermint is a natural anti-spasmodic. It helps to relax the muscles of the GI tract and relieve some feelings of discomfort.

How do you take Wind-eze?

Wind-eze can be taken 3-4 times a day and is usually taken after food. You should chew the tablets before swallowing them. Do not swallow them whole.

Wind-eze chewable tablets are fast-acting and should help to relieve your symptoms quickly. You should only take the 4th tablet before bedtime if you feel as though you need it.

How long can I take Wind-eze for?

Wind eze shouldn’t be taken for more than 2 weeks (14 days) without consulting your own doctor. Your symptoms should have disappeared within this time, so if you’re still experiencing discomfort whilst taking Wind-eze, it might be due to an underlying condition. Make sure that you note down all of your symptoms to recall to the doctor as they might want to run some tests depending on what you’ve reported.

How can I avoid trapped wind?

Trapped wind is sometimes unavoidable, but if you’re suffering from symptoms at the moment, or know that you’re prone to getting it, you can try the following advice:

  • avoid fizzy drinks
  • reduce your fibre intake
  • reduce your dairy intake
  • eat fewer carbohydrates
  • avoid fructose
  • limit your consumption of fatty foods.
Dosage Instructions
Adults and children 12 years and over: Take 1 tablet 3 or 4 times daily after meals and at bedtime as necessary. The tablets must be chewed before swallowing.
