I searched through this forum and other sites but I couldn't find what I was looking for exactly. The last couple of times I had a bowel movement, my stool was a green. Lately I've been having a lot of caffeine (mostly from moster energy drinks, the blue low- carb ones) and I've also started taking zoloft. I really don't know what the cause of all this can be, but if any of these things or other things can effect the color I'd appreciate a reply. =]

  • It's caused by the blue dye in the drinks. cut out the drinks and it will return to normal.

  • This is not always true with the drinks. It can be a symptom of something very serious if it doesn't go away talk to a doctor asap they still can't figure out why I have it.

  • Green stool can be seen alot with bacterial infections and is usually not a symptom of serious conditions. If the problem doesn't stop, you should see a doctor and have some blood tests done. Any change in stools that don't go back to normal by itself should be taken seriously.

  • Check for dientamoeba fragilis, a parasite normally inactive, but can become stomach and bowel dominant when recent use of keflex antibiotic kills off the good bugs in the stomach and bowel.you will need a special stool test with a fixitive agent, great smokie laboratories ??treatment is 20 days on doxyciycline (vibramyacin) and iodocquinol.

  • I had a rather large movement this morning and the second portion was bright green and quite smelly. Afterwords I felt a bit off and strange to breathe deep. Now several I still feel a bit off and aching in my intestines. Hot/cold flashes. I normally do not feel this way.I had 1.5 Monster Energy Drinks over Halloween night and another this morning. Hopefully it will go away. I'm going to try eating better tonight (chicken and salad) along with some live yogurt.
