Black stools after drinking. Is this a common side effect?

Black stools

Feces
after drinking is an ominous sign for a gastric ulcer or gastritis, aggravated by the alcohol, leading to bleeding. The blood turns black when exposed to acid in the stomach and hence makes the stools black. Stop drinking!! and go see a gastroenterologist to make the diagnosis and get you on a treatment plan before you do some serious damage.

Is it normal having black stools after drinking hard alcohol?

NO

Open-uri20120721-22560-cg6b0u
Alcohol can cause gastritis or other kinds of GI bleeding. Stools could be black because of passing old blood. Please see your family physician for evaluation and help. This will only get worse with inattention and continued alcohol use.

After you drink black coffee, is it normal to have a black stool?

I don't think so.

Feces
If you have black, sticky, malodorous stool that might be due to gastrointestinal bleeding (melena). If this is the case - please seek prompt medical attention.

Black stool?

Could be serious!

Blood_type
Black stools can be from several things. The most worrisome would be from blood in the stool, which can be from stomach irritation (gastritis/ulcer) or more serious problems like colon infections or even cancer. Especially if you are older or have a family history of colon problems, see someone as evaluation may be needed. Other causes can be iron taken as a supplement, or pepto-bismol
