I have to take 325 mgs of iron a day, which gives me C like no other, so I don't take it every day. But when I have the D I will take it more often to help put me back to the C. Well anyway, it turns my stool black. The more I take it the darker it gets. Are you taking an iron supplement?

i dont know i havent been as yet but i took a flaxseed oil tablets after dinner so hopefully i will find out tomorow, im not sure what to think if its normal though, i mean the black only showed up in the D and the rest had been normal as normal can be for me before that.i havent contacted the doctor its a bit difficult as im still registered with a doc where i used to live and have just moved away so i dont even know what surgery to go to to register herei was reading about that GI bleeding thing earlier and that got me freaked out though especially since i cant associate it with my diet, i cant think of anything i wouldnt normally eat that i have done

Hi Sophie 22- Pepto Bismol (or whatever is the equivalent by you & Imodium automatically turn your stool black. If you take Pepto Bismol liquid by mouth0your tongue will turn black! My Doc told me that & everyone I know who takes either one happens to them too. See what goes-bet you that's what it is. Have you had a colonoscopy? Except for "****" you drink nite before- not a bad procedure. Take care-
