Thanks for the query
Ideally these three medications wont cause backish discoloration of stool. Are you taking any other supplements like vitamins? Was an endoscopy done to rule out an ulcer? Do a occult blood for in stool test and approach a general physician for further care. If it is positive then an endoscopy has to be done to rule out an ulcer.
