I've been taking 15mL of pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) everyday for five days now. Is that bad? Should I stop? What happens if I continue?
Well...: It isn't horrible, but pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) contains salicylate (aspirin) so you can get ringing of your ears, vertigo. Long term use also can make your tongue black and your stools grayish black. (It goes away when you stop taking it) I'm more concerned about why you need to take it for 5 days. Pepto is really for a short term illness, not long term use. It may be time to see a doctor. ...Read more
Are there any serious downsides to taking expired pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate)? The expiration date says October 2015 and it is November 9th

Sometimes they may lose some potency over time but, from my understanding of the main ingredient in Pepto Bismol, bismuth subsalicylate, it should be perfectly fine to take it today. ...Read more

Salycilate: Pepto contains bismuth subsalycilate. Aspirin is also a salycilate. Because they both have that in them, it was assumed (a long time ago) that it might cause more bleeding, but that has never been proven. Pepto also turns the stool black. Ulcer bleeding can also turn the stool black. So, pepto covers up an important sign of bleeding ulcer complacation. Single use not bad, chronic use not good ...Read more
