Hi,Welcome to Just Answer. Ok. The good news is that the ingestion of one tablet of pep to bismol for a guy his size isn't going to be a toxic issue. In fact, that dose is used a lot in dogs his size for helping treat diarrhea. On a side note, the pepto can cause the stool color to get darker so don't be surprised if it is darker for a couple days. He is going to be all right. No further treatment is needed.
