Can iron pills make stools smell metallic?
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
Iron pills generally cause black stools and makes them smell just like iron. What you have reported is typical of someone who is on iron tablets. There is no need to get worried about this unless something else like blood in stools or pains in the intestines comes up.
In all, this is most likely caused by the iron tablets. There is no need to get worried unless you develop some new symptoms.
I hope this helps.. Ii wish you well and thank you so much for using our services. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
