My doctor told me to keep pepto bismol with me for when I start experiencing my stomach cramps, I had heard though that it was bad for the stomach tissue I think? Any thoughts or exeriences with Pepto Bismol?
Pepto has never helped me where my diarrhea is concerned, etc.... I only use it when I have an upset stomach, like heartburn, etc....No over the counter medicines, or prescription medicines, have ever helped me and neither has changing my foods, etc....
I have one memory of a Pepto Bismol occurance with my brother.He had a bad food reaction from a restaurant and he began taking Pepto Bismol. After a day or so his stool began to turn black.He was told by a friend who is a nurse that the black stools were from the PeptoBismol.Unfortunately I don't remember how that problem was solved or anyother helpful information beyond the black stool occurance.Maybe someone else will have a more clear observation of Pepto Bismol.Kamie
