Pepto Bismol Liquid How to Take

Bismuth Subsalicylate belongs to a class of medications called antacids and adsorbents. It is used to help relieve heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, nausea, and Diarrhea. How bismuth subsalicylate works is not completely understood, but it is thought to work by coating the stomach and intestines (protecting them from stomach acid), by reducing inflammation in the stomach, and by killing certain bacteria.

Bismuth subsalicylate has also been used to prevent travelers' diarrhea and along with antibiotics to treat ulcers believed to be caused by the bacteria H. pylori. In both cases, other treatments are generally more effective.
