Information

Kaopectate (Bismuth subsalicylate) is used to treat diarrhea, nausea, heartburn, indigestion, gas, or upset stomach, as well as mild stomach ulcers in adults and teenagers. Kaopectate increases the absorption of fluids and electrolytes by the intestinal wall; it reduces inflammation and irritation of the stomach and intestinal lining. As an antacid, it works to neutralize the acids in the stomach and intestines, which can lead to a decrease of certain symptoms. As a bactericide, it works to kill the bacteria in the gut, such as E. coli, a common cause of “traveller’s diarrhea”.

The Kaopectate Child (Cherry Flavoured) is available in 180 ml, Kaopectate Regular (Vanilla Flavoured) is available in a dosage of 600 mg/15 ml/250 ml, and Kaopectate Extra Strength (Mint Flavour) is available in 250 ml and 350 ml.

Side Effects

The common side effects of Kaopectate include constipation or dark coloured stools. Stop taking Kaopectate and contact your doctor at once if you notice more serious side effects such as changes in behaviour with nausea and vomiting, hearing loss or ringing in your ears (tinnitus), diarrhea that lasts longer than 2 days, or a worsening of your stomach symptoms. Kaopectate can cause you to have a black or darkened tongue. This is a completely harmless side effect.

Customer Precautions

You should not use Koapectate if you are allergic to it, or if you have black or bloody stools, a severe stomach ulcer, bleeding problems, or if you are allergic to salicylates such as aspirin. To make sure Kaopectate is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have mucus in your stools, or if you currently have a fever. Do not give this medication to a child or teenager with a fever, flu symptoms, or chickenpox. Salicylates can cause Reye’s syndrome, a serious and sometimes fatal condition in children. Talk to your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding to discuss any possible risks.
