pepto bismol how long do you have black stools

I have large bowel pain so I took pepto bismol to see if it would help. It didn't but now may stools are black . I only had two aplications of pepto bismol ,how long do you have black stools. Ihave already had three movements. I have also developed a pain in the center of my back. It feels like my lungs. I am in mexico and was wondering could this be caused by something I ate. I have had it for aleast 5-6 days now.

If you're stools are black like coffee grounds go to the doctor immediately this could indicate internal bleeding. Don't wait, call your doctor. Black stools indicate blood coming from further up in the digestive system. My father had this when he had a bleeding ulcer. Good luck Suzy.

after you change you diet, check it. Also see if it's dark black or marroon in color? If it maroon, you better get it chcked up. don't delay there. sometimes foods like licorish can cause it tho

Pepto Bismol will turn your stools black. Stopping it will take several days for it to clearup and become normal.
