Green stool

Feb 4, 2012

Hi,.. I started my meds in August 2011, my stool become green and Got used to it... suddenly the stool has gone back to its original color.. has this to do with the meds and is it nommal.. i have not changed the medication nor have i missed any dosage. I am on Atripla. SDG

Response from Dr. Young

Hi SDG and thanks for posting.

I'm not aware of any effect that Atripla (or its component medications) have on stool color. It would seem to me that the fact that your stools are normal colored now is, well, normal. That's probably a good thing.

Be well, BY
