Hello,

It is the medicines causing the change the color of stool, and other sign but it is nothing to worry because short term treatment may not cause the severe symptoms, the bleeding while brushing the tooth may happen in normal subject and here in your case it is not due to the medicine, (Bleeding gums should not happen without brushing the tooth) finish the course of medicines and everything will be gone, no need to worry about it.



Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, I have IBS but have noticed after a night-out my stool had black patches. I read that this was just undisgested food but, earlier had a bowel movement that appeared black and was very flaky. I haven t been diagonized officially with IBS but my mom has and she says that it is mostly exam stress, and moving flat causing it. But I see this kind of topic in IBS articles a lot- should I be worried though?
