common household diahretics
my 12 y.0. son is experiencing a tummy ache.(I believe it is because of the tough steak or the nachos with cheese dip he had last night). I believe his system shut down from over-exertion. I don't know if we have ex-lax laying around the house and I was wondering if there are any other household remedies that suit the purpose. Is pepto-bismol appropriate? He's stopped up.
