all of those medications you mentioned decrease stomach acid.
most gas is produced in the small bowel and colon.
many men your age are lactose intolerant and can't break down the milk lactose sugar
have you tried to avoid milk and diary for 2-4 weeks to see if your gas gets better
have you tried to avoid gluten wheat protein in bread and pasta and pizza which often can cause gas in patients who are not tolerant of gluten?
