    Pepto-Bismol has been known to cause one’s tongue and stool to turn black. This form of “black tongue”, however, is a result of the separation of bismuth from salicylate, forming bismuth trisulfide (Bi2S3) in combination with the sulfur found in saliva.

    Some antibiotics can cause black tongues. Once you complete your course of antibiotics the black tongue should go away on its own. If the black tongue seriously interferes with your life and you are considering discontinuing antibiotics, consult your physician first.

    Some asthma inhalers may cause a black tongue in certain individuals. Your physician may want to reduce your dose or switch you to another type of inhaler.

    Usually black tongue is caused by a bacterial or fungal infection. The first step in the treatment will be to remove any of the causes of irritation that are listed above.
