Guys another quick one. Sometimes pepto seems to REALLY help.Is this a good thing,or bad long term effects?? Thanks everyone!

Like most things - some of Pepto is fine. I wouldn't recommend it becoming a part of your daily living but that's my opinion.

When I get glutened pepto is the only thing I use for my stomach pain. I never thought it would work but tried it once in desperation. As stated I would not use it on a daily basis but for an emergency in a glutening it works well and the only side effect I have noticed is that it can darken stools dramatically.

I've also noticed that if I get glutened and take pepto a few days in a row it can be incredibly constipating. Other than that, I think it works like nothing else and makes it possible to actually leave the house when I get glutened. I've done some research into it and haven't found anything scary at all.

Pepto - don't leave home without it :) Actually in my tavels, I rarely need Pepto anymore, but I honestly - never leave home without it.

I agree completely, but don't try to take the bottle on an airplane - they just confiscated mine a couple weeks ago. The security agent said I could keep it in my luggae, but I kept asking how that was going to help if I got D on the plane! :blink:

Is it really right when the last thing you ingested becomes spackled to that last food vessel that you used?
