I love Pepto Bismal!!! And a doctor I saw from the Cleveland Clinic recommended it (up to four times a day even). He said it's perfectly safe to take every day, even long term. I'm feeling fine now, being on Lialda and tapering Entocort; BUT Pepto is my security blanket. If my stomach is making noise in the morning, I just take a swig and immediately feel better. I've also taken along a big bottle on vacations, just to know that I can walk around without being constantly worried about
having an accident in public. Yes, it turns your stool dark, almost black, but it should help with the diarrhea and that's what we all want, isn't it??!!
