« on: January 29, 2014, 09:34:14 PM »
So i was Diagnosed with Colitis which has calmed my fears of CRC and my Doc put me Rifaximin and Laxatives, and i've been getting alot of better in the past week, constipation is almost gone, but i've been going less to the bathroom and i've been pooping dark green Stools, and i've been having some Acid Reflux, is this normal?

Are you taking any vitamins? I think Iron can cause this.

Did you eat anything with a lot of green or BLUE food coloring?  I made a cake once with green food coloring and REALLY blue icing and the poop was green and when I wiped it was as green as a traffic light!

I have ibs and I occasionally get green poop. It just means food got digested too quickly. It's probably a side effect from the meds. You should mention it to your doctor just as a precaution, but its probably nothing serious.

Also I should mention. My grandma had colitis and lived to be 97.   :spineyes:

My GI physician once told me that one possible cause of green stools can be caused by your food moving through
your digestive system too quickly.
