Pepto Bismol causes BLACK STOOL, for Pete's Sake!

How long does BLACK STOOL last?

I noticed that Pepto-Bismol sometimes darkens the tongue/stool.

Why does this happen and how long does it last?

The active ingredient in Pepto-Bismol contains bismuth.

When a small amount of bismuth combines with trace amounts of sulfur in your saliva and gastrointestinal tract,

a black-colored substance (bismuth sulfide) is formed.

This discoloration is temporary and harmless.

It can last several days after you stop taking Pepto-Bismol.

Individual bowel habits,

your age (the intestinal tract slows down with age), and the amount of the product taken all help

to determine how long Pepto-Bismol is in your system."
