Stomach pain after food intake, stool black. Test normal, on diet and medication. Is it fine?

My son is 7 years old and complains of frequent stomach pain. Mostly this comes after he has had his food and lasts for max 5 minutes. His stools are usually black in color. Abdomen scanning, stool and urine tests as advised by doctor have been done and they are ok. Since the pain is continuing, now the doctor has prescribed Lanzol 15 for 1 month, 1 tablet per day in the morning. Suggested to have lots of fruits and vegetables, but no milk. Is this ok?

Thank you for your query,
Black stool is concerning symptom as it is associated with upper gastrointestinal bleeding or some times due to oral iron supplementation.
But as your child stool investigation is normal and there is no RBC or hemoglobin in stool, nothing to worry.
The treatment your child is receiving is appropriate and continue the medication as per your Pediatrician advise.
Hope I have answered your query.
