Re: Concerta absorbtion during stomach issues needing pepto bismol

There usually is a warning on the packet of antacids like Pepto Bismol, Mylanta and Gaviscon. You cant take any medications 2 hours before or after taking antacids as it retards the absorption of the other medication. So you will get erratic absorption into the blood stream, and some might even be wasted.

You CAN take Pepto Bismol, just not 2 hours before or after the meds. I take similar products, and when usually take them 2 hours before I need to take the medication. Works fine.
