Green stool , PPI. HELP!

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello. I am a male 24 yrs old. never had any intestinal problems or stomach problems. i'm not overwheight also. i had a bout of anxiety for one week due to college stress and i went to the doctor as i was feeling ill. she prescribed an weak anti anxiety medicine which helped and im no longer anxious. but with that she also prescribed omeprazole so protect the stomach. i took it for 1 week and a half and then i noticed my stool had become green. its been like this for 4 or 5 days and she said to stop taking it which i did 6 days ago. Could it be related to omeprazole which lowered my stomach acid ( inever had stomach acid problems, only a little heartburn when i ate too much candy) or also stomach pain. im not in any intestinal pain and my stool is not diarrhea but it is a little bit loose which has been improving these days. i go to bathroom maybe 3 -4 times a day. a few days ago i had no apettite and was feeling nauseated but that has been improving as since today the nausea is gone and i have more apettite. i would like to know if it can be due to the drugs ( i researched thoroughly and itsĀ  a possibility) or some underlying condition. also sometimes i get ( i dont know how to explain it, its not pain just a feeling ) on the ribcage right side, but i cant tell if its from the muscles or the gallblader, the feeling seems much more on the surface than inside and it doesnt really hurt, but im most certain its from a muscle from sitting on the same position. thank you

    Green stool can come due to many reasons. If you had green leafy vegetables like spinach or even candies can create the same issue. I will advise you not to worry and visit a gastronoligist if problem persists.
