Why was my tongue black?!

Question: Why was my tongue black!?
I woke up this morning and my mouth tasted like i threw up!. I went to brush my teeth (which i do twice a day) and noticed that my tongue was black!. I almost had a panick attack!. I scraped most of it off with a tongue scraper!.

Here is what I think it is!? Last night i ate some pepto bismold disolving tablets!. They were nasty and i spit it out!. Then I had a sip of diet coke and went to bed!. Could it be that!?Www@Answer-Health@Com

thats happened to me before you were probabably sleeping with your mouth open and the drink dried up on your tongueWww@Answer-Health@Com

Yes it says right on the bottle of Pepto, "May cause a harmless darkening of the tongue or stool (poop)!.

Also next time get the Pepto caplets that you take with water!. That way you can't taste them!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Dont freak out but its called Black Hairy Tongue caused by the bismuth in your pepto-bismol!.!.!.its actually quite common!.!.and harmless!.!.!.heres a link to explain:

Since it scraped off, it probably was the pepto bismol mixed with the coke!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Yes, very common!. The black should be gone with continued brushing within a day or so!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Yes, you are right!. Pepto Bismol for some reason can leave your tongue dark!. I've seen it many times over the years in my practiceWww@Answer-Health@Com
