Comments about Pepto-Bismol Regular Strength Liquid, 16 fl oz:
I normally don't rate medicine but I had the worst stomach ache in my life today. I thought I was dying and was preparing myself mentally for the possibility of a hospital visit. Anyway, my little brother brought me some of this pink stuff and in about an hour I was able to think again, breathe again, and stand up. This stuff works great for really bad stomach aches (pending nothing serious is going on...appendicitis etc.) Also superb for all the other reasons posted on the bottle. Hope it helps you the way it helped me today, THANK YOU Peto-Bismol!!!
