i have had a stomach virus and had severe diarrhea. my doc was not available and the doctor on call, said i could take pepto bismol. i took two doses. after doing some research, it said that it contains an aspirin derivative and could be harmful. does anyone know anything about this? i am 10 w.

i had my first doctors appt last week and my doctor said Pepto bismol was safe. Hey gave me a list of 6 things i could take without having to call the office and ask him and Pepto bismol was one of them. hope that helps...

According to the information they gave me at the OB clinic. For diarrhea you can do the BRAT diet. (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast). It says you can take Kaopectate, and Imodium. However, I can tell you that if it's due to food poisioning you shouldn't take these things. Do you have a fever? Anything over 100.5 and you should go to the doctor ASAP.
