Simeticone (Restime®) works by lowering surface tension of gas bubbles in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract leading them to coalesce and be expelled.

There have been no reports of undesirable effects after ingestion of simeticone. A very severe allergic reaction is rare. However, if you notice any undesirable effects, consult your child’s doctor immediately.

No, Restime® is an over-the-counter medicine but it is still best to consult your doctor.
