Don't really think so, however you should always tell your doc before taking Kaopectate your medical history, especially of: black/tarry stool, blood/mucus in your stool, high fever, HIV infection/AIDS, liver problems, certain stomach/intestinal infections (e.g., Salmonella, Shigella), certain type of bowel disease (acute ulcerative colitis).
Take care, be safe, best wishes!
No. This medication can turn your stools dark colored but not red. Red could be indicative of a bleed in the lower GI tract and should be evaluated by your as soon as possible-dont wait, call him today. Blood losses of this kind can cause you to become anemic quickly and if you wait too long you could need a transfusion so dont mess around with this and go see your Dr!
