Brief Answer: Seems to be normal Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX Normal color of stool is usually pale yellow but could vary in color based on your diet and if there is presence of a digestive infection. Plyera is a medication with combination of bismuth, metronidazole and tetracycline and together with omeprazole is used for the treatment of H. pylori infection (major cause of gastritis). Your stool lightening up is a good sign and should consider this normal. Meaning plyera is actually having a good effect on your digestive tract. I should not worry much about this. Hope this helps and wish you the best. Feel free to ask any follow-up queries. Dr. Nsah
