It took me two times to realize gas X was giving me a low blood sugar attack with the shakes and light headless. They really should print a warning on the box if you have low blood sugar don't take this.

I have a fever and stomach virus that has been causing so much stomach pain it's keeping me from sleeping. Is it safe to take this while being sick? Only thing I took was ibprofeun

One of the inactive ingredients, calcium phosphate tribasic says do not take if you have a history of kidney stones so I am wondering if GasX can cause them! I called the makers of GasX but they have NO info on the inactive ingredients!!!
