Pepto-Bismol tablets are quick-relief chewable peppermint tablets that relieve indigestion, heartburn, and other digestive system problems, such as short-term diarrhoea.
Stomach acid can irritate the digestive system, causing discomfort and pain. This can lead to indigestion, diarrhoea, acid reflux or heartburn. Pepto-Bismol works effectively and provides instant relief from these problems. You can also use Pepto-Bismol for bloating, nausea, and constipation.
In some cases, your doctor may suggest Peptoeven for chronic stomach disorders. Moreover, the anti-bacterial properties of the medicine also make it effective for travellers with diarrhoea. Make sure Pepto-Bismol chewable is taken for such conditions only when your doctor recommends it.
Pepto-Bismol works quickly; it usually starts working within 30 to 60 minutes.
Pepto-Bismol’s active ingredient, bismuth subsalicylate, protects the oesophagus and stomach lining from the stomach acid by coating the irritated tissues. It also acts as a mild antacid in order to get rid of the excess acid that is causing discomfort.
Pepto-Bismol tablets can either be chewed or dissolved in the mouth; there is no need to take Pepto-Bismol medicine with water. Just make sure to read the patient information leaflet enclosed with the medicine before starting Pepto-Bismol use.
The recommended Pepto-Bismol dosage is two tablets. The dose can be repeated after 30 to 60 minutes. However, it is not recommended to take more than 8-10 tablets in a period of 24 hours.
