I've had an issue with dark green stools, it started about a week ago. Around that same time I moved from to a place with much much higher humidity, and I've been on a poorer diet(lots of processed food, ) and havent exercised much since moving. I'm currently taking accutane (a strong acne medicine) and I'm about 4 months into the treatment->(i had a blood test done in relation to this about 2 weeks ago and it was fine). At first I thought the issue was because of alcohol consumption (very very occasional), which had in the past caused similar problems the next day, that went away immediately, but I haven't drank any since the day before this began. The stools aren't particularly soft or hard, and they leave the rest of the water in the bowl looking dyed green. I have no abdominal pain or weakness. I'm somewhat worried. Please help!
