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).

Stomach meds: You should be able to take both. Pepto is like an antacid and Imodium (loperamide) is an antispasmodic to relax the gut.

A 36-year-old member asked:

Which of the follow is most effective: pepto bismol, imodium, (loperamide) or kaopectate?

Effective at which?: Kaopectate basically is pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate). Both have bismuth salicylic acid which may have some antibacterial properties. Both are Aspirin products though and cannot be given to children or pregnant women or those otherwise intolerant of aspirin. Immodium does not treat the root cause of the diarrhea but has great stopping power. It wins.
