How does it work? This product includes 262 mg of Bismuth Subsalicylate as the one and only active ingredient. This drug works by eliminating harmful bacteria causing the digestive problems and limiting the flow of electrolytes and fluids to the gut, reducing inflammation in the intestines.

In addition to that, if you have an ulcer and get blood in your stool, consult a doctor before you take this medicine. You should also consult a doctor if you’re taking any blood-thinning medicine.
