My boyfriends mother came to visit us last week for the Holidays and I was not feeling 100%. I thought maybe the stress of the holidays had caught upto me and I just needed to relax. Oh how wrong I was... I was sick not stressed.
I won't share all the details of my stomach bug, but I was feeling quite horrible. After a few hours of misery I asked my sweetie if he could go pick up something to make me feel a little bit better. I did not want to ruin the visit with his mom.
My boyfriend came back with Equate maximum strenght Stomach relief. This is the Wal-Mart version of Pepto bismuth. It contains 525 mg of bismuth subsalicylate per dose. This medicine is ideal for upset stomachs, indigestion, heartburn, nausea and diarrhea.
After taking the recommend dose of 1 tablespoon within minutes I began to feel a touch better. 30 minutes later I took another dose and felt a lot better! This store brand generic version of pepto bismuth is as effective as the original. It tastes exactly the same and provides the same relief.
For less than $3 per bottle you can get a 12 oz bottle, which is a great deal.
I would recommend this product to anyone. It is a good item to keep on hand, because you never know when a stomach issue will arrive.
