Can I Take Imodium And Pepto Bismol
Effective at which?: Kaopectate basically is pepto bismol. 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. ...Read more
Pepto + Imodium: 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. ...Read more
What's the difference between Immodium and Pepto Bismol in terms of anti-diarrhea? Would either help with lower abdominal cramp + minor diarrhea?

It's ok: There should be no interactions between fluconazole and either of these over-the-counter medicines.

If you're having diarrhea, be sure to increase your fluid intake to avoid dehydration. Contact your doctor if it persists. Good luck. ...Read more
