I took 4 Pepto Bismal tablets on Friday morning and this is Sunday morning. Normal bowel movements have not resumed. How long do the effects of Pepto Bismal last?
For what are you using Pepto Bismol? Diarrhea? Constipation?
Tips for managing diarrhea:
1. Identify drug-related causes: antibiotics, magnesium
2. Manage symptoms with drugs: probiotics; pepto bismol (262mg/30 minutes; max: 8 doses/day)
3. Seek medical attention if severe or bloody, feverish, or lasting >10 days.
Diarrhea should subside in 7-10 days.
