    I don't know.. but you CAN take mylecon.. however it's spelled.. same thing they have for babies (Infant gas drops). There is some for adults. Don't know how to get it. They gave me some for bloating and gas when they dischaged me from the hospital after delivery.

    hope you feel better soon.

    here is info on pepto:
    It is not recommended that you use Pepto Bismol because it contains an ingredient associated with Reyes Syndrome in kids (similar to why you can't give children aspirin). You need to look for a medication with Loperamide as the main ingredient such as Imodium, Pepto Diarrhea Control, Maalox Antidiarrheal Caplets, Kaopectate II Caplets, Immodium Advanced. This information came from kellymom here is the link

    They gave me Gas-X at the hospital after delivery so I use it for gas.
