History of Phazyme

For over 30 years, Phazyme has provided reliable gas relief. Phazyme began in the 1970s. At the time, Phazyme was only promoted to physicians as an over-the-counter medicine to fight gas attacks. In the early 1980s, there was still a great deal of confusion among consumers regarding the difference between anti-gas and antacid products. When Block Drug Company bought Phazyme, it launched an aggressive campaign to address those differences with the theme, “Don’t Make the Antacid Mistake.”

In 2012, the Phazyme brand was bought by Fleet Laboratories, a company with more than 140 years in the personal healthcare industry, now ranking among the top nonprescription drug companies in the healthcare business. And the Phazyme name has continued to grow ever since.

Since its beginning, Phazyme has been known as strong, serious, reliable medicine, always striving to deliver the highest dosage of simethicone, the #1 anti-gas ingredient recommended by physicians and pharmacists. And now, with both 180mg and 250mg strengths available, Phazyme is the strongest anti-gas medication available in treating the bloating, pressure and discomfort of gas.

And in the coming years, Phazyme plans to continue leading the field with more products in the Phazyme line.
