A 39-year-old member asked:

If you took pepto bismol can you take imodium (loperamide) the same day?

Pepto + Imodium (loperamide): This should be no problem and often these two drugs are prescribed together. I would recommend that you space each drug as far apart from the other drug as possible. This way the pepto bismol will not interfere with the system absorption of the imodium (loperamide).
