On medicines for acid reflux, persisting greenish and soft stools. Is this normal?

I have acid reflux/gastritis. I am on Omeprazole 20 mg b.i.d., I am also on 2-3 tablespoons of antacid per day. My stools are greenish and soft since taking these meds. Is this normal? This is my first bout of gastritis. I am 56 years old and I still have slight slight burning in my stomach if I eat like I used to. I hate this!

hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you are treated for acid peptic disease, with tablets and syrup..
you have green stools..
probably you have Gastrointestinal infection..
get one stool examination done, and see the physician with the results..
need to put on antibiotics, combination of fluoroquinolones and metronidazole..
after that a course of probiotics and multivitamins..
for gastritis, test for H pylori infection and take tablets for 2 weeks against H pylori..
all the very best.
