... which must be taken with food? Some of my meds indicate that if they cause nausea, they should be taken with food. Will the coating action of Pepto make it improbable that the meds will be absorbed?
No, medicines can still be absorbed in the presence of Pepto-Bismol.
The following drugs can interact with bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol)
Tell your doctor if you are using any of these:
a blood thinner such as warfarin (Coumadin);
insulin or diabetes medications you take by mouth;
medications to treat gout, such as probenecid (Benemid) or sulfinpyrazone (Anturane);
medication used to prevent blood clots, such as alteplase (Activase), streptokinase (Kabikinase, Streptase), and urokinase (Abbokinase);
salicylates such as aspirin, Novasal, Doan's Extra Strength, Salflex, Tricosal, and others; or
a tetracycline antibiotic, including doxycycline (Adoxa, Doryx, Oracea, Vibramycin), minocycline (Dynacin, Minocin, Solodyn, Vectrin), and others.
