Can we have Pepto Bismal (spelling)? If not...please advise why we should not have it? I am preparing for my cruise and I always take along a lil Pepto just in case I get diarrhea. These days if you go to the ship's doctor to get treated for just simple food related diarrhea, you will likely be quarantined for a minimum of 24 hours. That would suck big time on a cruise. So, I want to take along my own stash of anti diarrhea meds....will Pepto be safe? If not, pleease advise why not, and offer a healthy alternative. LOL.
Pepto contains Aspirin and may increase your risk of developing a stomach ulcer and bleeding. I would go with plain immodium in the tablet from. I avoid the liquid because the syrup contains sugar. Tums are calcium carbonate and might help if your stomach gets upset.
Have fun on your cruise :)

Thank you all! I didnt realize that Pepto had Asprin or NSAID. I will be safe and get a pack of Tums and some Imodium!
