Obviously, people take expired medications and nothing seems to happen. You can ask your pharmacist about PeptoBismol since it's OTC.

Therefore, in answer to your question I would have to vote NOT to take it.
Im having a reaction to amoxycillin(diarrhea). Can i take peptobismol while on antibiotics?
Hello. Thank you for your question. I take your meeting to be that you are having some stomach upset. Is perfectly safe to take peptobismol while on antibiotics. Do not be afraid to take it. Additionally, you should consider taking a probiotic. This will also help your stomach. These can be found over the counter and are to be taken daily.
