Frequently Asked Questions
Cabinet Stomach Relief, a generic alternative to Pepto-Bismol® Softgels, is a popular over-the-counter (OTC) medicine used for nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, and diarrhea. The active ingredient, bismuth subsalicylate, belongs to a drug class called salicylates. This ingredient is thought to work in the gastrointestinal tract by absorbing water and toxins in the large intestine, decreasing the amount fluid and electrolytes that enter the bowel, reducing inflammation in the intestines, and killing harmful organisms that cause diarrhea.
Cabinet Stomach Relief is a medicine used to relieve diarrhea and travelers' diarrhea. This product can also help with other gastrointestinal symptoms caused by over indulgence in food and drink including: heartburn, abdominal pain, indigestion, nausea, gas, belching, and fullness.
Fun fact! Bismuth subsalicylate is often also used as part of a combination treatment for H. pylori infections.
Children and teenagers who have or are recovering from chicken pox or flu-like symptoms should avoid this product. If your child or teen falls into this boat and used a salicylate-containing product, seek medical help immediately if you notice behavior changes along with nasuea and vomiting. These could be early symptoms of Reye's syndrome, which is a rare but serious illness.

Ask your doctor before using Cabinet Stomach Relief if you currently have a fever or have mucus in the stool.
