What Causes Green Stools In A Person With IBS?

What causes green stools? I have IBS-C and I am on Linzes (sp) to help with my weekly constipation. Can this medication cause green stools? I also take a Womens Daily Vitamin, but I only take it 2-3 times per week. Can Green stools mean you have an infection?

Hello,

Green stools can be part of intake of certain elements in food as spinach, alteration in gut flora or liver biliary system, GI infection or else.

Kindly get a stool microscopy examination done for the particular diagnosis and care accordingly.

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

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon
