NO!: Never give a prescription med not prescribed to a person without permission of that person's doctor. Also, adult Pepto-bismol should not be given to children 16 years and younger. Read labels Try sips (1-2 tsps) of flat 7-up/sprite every 10 minutes for a couple of hours, then gradually increase amount slowly as long as its not being vomited. See MD if no better in 12-24 hours on clear liquids
