I HAVE BISMUTH TOXICITY FROM TAKING PEPTOBISMOL. HOW DO I GET THE BISMUTH OUT OF MY SYSTEM?

Hello,

 

Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. Your kidneys will process the bismuth and remove it from your body. Be sure to drink plenty of water. There are therapies for bismuth poisoning including IV chelation if your doctors believe that is necessary, but nothing you can do on your own.
