    It's more likely to be the iron supplement. Bred wine can also do it.

    Iron supplelements and medicines can cause stools to be black, it's quite normal nothing to worry about.

    An intake of oral Iron tablets can cause one's stool to be darkened, as can internal bleeding.

    If you have the slightest doubt in your mind which one is causing it you need to go and see your doctor.

    The best test is to stop taking the Iron tablets and see what happens, and if the stool continues to be dark then don't delay in seeing your doctor.

    Could be iron, could be digested blood. Don't think it could be anxiety. I think you should see a Dr right away.
