Drug interaction: You certainly can. However, it is possible that, taken too closely, the absorption of Pepcid (famotidine) might be decreased. So, space the dosing interval.

Should be ok if...: If a person had no problems taking Pepcid AC in the recent past for some medical condition, and separately had no problem taking Pepto-Bismol in the recent past, then she should be ok taking the medications at the same time. If worried, she can ask her doctor who prescribed the medications. Sometimes, a brand name (such as Pepto-Bismol) changes its ingredients as the years go by.
