Avatar f tn So, it could be the stomach virus. You're still sick even if you inhibit vomiting. Glad that worked for you! The other possibility is that perhaps you had a touch of food poisoning but with your house having a stomach virus, likely you did as well and while the meds you took (don't take someone else's meds, take only what is prescribed by a doctor for you personally)--- stopped vomiting, it doesn't mean you didn't have the virus and other effects of it.
Avatar n tn I'm 7 weeks 4 days An my stomach is VERY upset is it OK to take pepto
Avatar f tn She started belching several times so I thought she may have a sour stomach and gave her some pepto bismol. About 45 min. after she took the pepto she vomited and what she had eaten for dinner about 9.5 hours earlier looked as if she had just eaten it. When she was finished she laid back down and finally fell asleep. At 5:00am my alarm goes off and she wakes up. I asked her how she was feeling and she said "fine" that her stomach didn't hurt anymore and she felt better.
Avatar m tn Pepto-Bismol is an over-the-counter drug used for treatment of nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhoea, and other temporary discomforts of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Ginger ale is often used as a home remedy to alleviate indigestion or motion sickness. Hence you can take them and once you feel slightly better you can get antacids and anti-emetics form the pharmacy. Hope this helps. The answer is based on information provided.

Avatar n tn Welcome to the IBS community! This could be a virus or the stomach flu. If it continues I would recommend seeing your doctor about it.
Avatar m tn The day I noticed him acting different, he threw up his food that night. My Dad gave him Pepto Bismo, and said not to let him eat for 24 hours. (like hes a vet) I tried giving him food and he wouldnt eat it. Hes acting really weak. He urinated on the floor, and when I was cleaning it up it was...slimy. Does anybody know what may be wrong with him???
Avatar f tn 21 yr old female: I've had stomach issues for awhile but never like this. Before it was just a little appetite decrease,a little reflux, and heartburn; it wasn't a daily thing, maybe 4 days a month. But back in May I rushed to the E.R after hour of vomiting and extreme nausea. I continued vomiting for hours until it was finally supressed. Released after 10 hours with no diagnosis. The tested urine and blood. Next day I was fine, a lil sore, but fine. In June it came back, but worse.
Avatar n tn maybe a stomach virus. Need to take her to a doctor, and then get a second opinion if your suspicions still are there.
974371 tn?1424653129 00 am sweating then getting nausea, tried taking Pepcid this time, my Xanax and then Pepto and a few crackers. Settled down some but still bloated. Don't seem to even be able to eat bland food now, have lost about 8 lbs. also still hacking up mucus and bad globus. Per the FODMAP diet,I cannot eat most of those. I just know this is now chronic, all day every day.
Avatar f tn I never had any problems with my stomach, until a couple weeks before my Tx ended. Then I got this "bug". It looks like this: It starts with lackof appetite (unusual foe me!) and then chills, and diarhoea..and after that, I feel drained, with more chills, and an achey neck. It hasn't been too bad so far, only two bouts right before my Tx was over, and a couple bouts since it ended 2 weeks ago.
593810 tn?1251223030 Ladies, I feel like i'm going to get seriously sick. I have been feeling so great once i started into my 2nd trimester, but now i have the worst stomach aches. I think it's a mixture of constipation which i've had from the very beginning, and the urge to throw up. I dont know what to do. I'm trying to keep the water down, but i feel like it's just sitting in my chest ready to come up. And i have no appetite whatsoever. Can i take anything?
Avatar n tn Hello, It sounds like she definitely has some kind of issue going on with her stomach/intestines (but what I can not say for sure), and that is most likely Why she is eating the grass/dirt so she will vomit. It sounds like she is eating it because she is in fact nauseated but it could be possible however that the eating of grass/dirt may have become a habit. You may want to monitor her closely to prevent it while she is outside a couple of days to see if that helps her or not.
Avatar f tn At this point you're probably pretty dehydrated since you say you're weak and feeling cold - both can be signs of dehydration. Did the black diarrea start before or after you took the Pepto? I'm asking because Pepto can cause your stools (and even tongue) to turn black temporarily - however, if your stools were a black color before taking the meds, it could be a sign of blood in the stool, which could be serious.
Avatar m tn pepto bismol does that.
Avatar f tn Im 24w5d pregnant and I just finis eating, and I have the sensation that my stomach is burning. Idk what to do. Idk if maybe what I eat was too acidic idk it feels in the middle of my stomach. Should I go to the er? By the way I ate a pizza slice with a salad(italian dressing). Any ideas of what could it be. Thank you ladies.
Avatar n tn I have recent had an upset stomach and diarrhoea and taken some pepto bismol to help settle the stomach which worked. my stools today was black with like a fatty substance on it. what is the fatty substance does this need checking out or has it been caused from the pepto bimol.
Avatar f tn they helped me alot the peppermint flavor only.. couldnt keep down any other flavor. they really settled my stomach. i had a stomach ulcer at 10wks and was puking blood.
Avatar f tn I want to say, that black tarry stool is also a sign of bleeding from the stomach or upper (esophagus). Stomach bugs usually don't cause stomach bleeding. If you previously had gastritis or stomach ulcer, or if you've been taking aspirins, ibuprofen, a lot of alsco...smoking, than it could be blood. You will know. If any doubt, have a hemoccult test for blood in stool.
556500 tn?1222338630 i have had stomach issues over a week now. (seem better today) it was in the gallbladder area. saturday, i took only 1 dose of pepto bismal to alleviate the feeling. which had seemed to help for that day. from the 3rd day on including today (thursday) my bm is very dark. looks like the coffee that was brewed that you toss away. yesterday my doc told me that its possible that the pepto is still in my system. but its been 5 days. shouldnt it be gone? i have an apt next week. i am concerned.
Avatar m tn 5 months. All my symptoms are gone except stomach issues. I have not sh*t normal in 2 weeks. Any idea how long this lasts? It is getting rather painful. I am kinda worried I just jacked my stomach up from taking so many of the pills. I have been on pepto, immodium AD, nothing seems to be helping. Think I should get a doctors opinion or just keep truckin?
