Response from Dr. Feinberg

Green diarrhea is just made up of bile fluid which normally empties into the gut. If your diarrhea is bad, ask your doctor for a prescription drug to slow it down, like Imodium or Lomotil. Another option is to change to a different protease inhibitor-- Viracept is well-known to cause lots of diarrhea.
