Pepto Bismol

i was just at a lecture yesterday where the physician speaking briefly said that Pepto Bismol isn't good for you to take if you'd had an eating disorder in the past. I raised my hand to ask for more details but we ran out of time and since then i've been wondering what that was all about.

if i had to guess i'd say maybe there is a risk of Pepto Bismol suppressing appetite, though i've never found that to happen for me. my stomach is permanently screwed up due to my eating disorders in the past and Pepto Bismal helps me keep a more normal digestive tract.

have you heard of any precautions for taking Pepto Bismal when/after having an ED?
