Can omeprazole cause green stool?

Can omeprazole cause green stool?

Probable coincidence: Green stool usually is caused by rapid transit - the stool moving through your bowels quickly. It is most likely that this was coincidence, and there is no documented "scientific" reason for this that I am aware of....However this is not the first time I've heard this. Eat plenty of fiber, drink plenty of water, and see if things don't work themselves out (no pun intended).

Green stool: You need to see a gastroenterologist. Stools should be checked for infectious diarrhea an blood. Green stool either represent ice of rapid transit. Possible bile salt diarrhea. Full work up is needed. Especially if accompanied by weight loss. This does not sound like mere ulcer

Just what U told us!: Your physician can best help you when patient-doctor communication is frank, open, honest, and paints a complete picture of symptom onset, severity, location, circumstances, in the context of meals, activity, position, recurrences, what makes it better/worse. Jot down your thoughts and questions before your visit so you leave nothing out.

Left stomach pain: I have seen individuals with a vaginal infection w/ mycoplasma/ ureoplasma have such pain. I treat with Zithromax or Doxycycline and Flagyl (if not allergic to these) and I have seen the pain resolve. Mycoplasma and ureo are normal in the vaginal tract but at times overgrow and cause pain. Rare other entities, spigelian hernia, Meckles, check for H pylori. Constipation bowel gas, foods. F/u w/ do

Dumping syndrome?: Dumping syndrome implies bolus emptying of the stomach into the duodenum with associated release of digestive hormones & insulin. Metabolic, motility, anatomic (shunts of upper GI tract), & iatrogenic (drug side effects) factors are causative. Symptoms: flushing, sweating, dizziness, weakness, hypovolemia, passing out. Consider also gastro-colic reflex as seen in some Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Gallbladder?: A young patient with right sided pain, bloating, and some stool abnormalities should be considered as gall bladder disease patient. Would make GERD worse, due to the typical bloating assoc. With GB disease. Discuss with your doctor. Stay on low fat until sorted out. For you GERD, keep your weight down, don't lie down after eating, limit alcohol and tobacco. Good luck.

Lot of burping/belching. Taking omeprazole-bicarb. Always had loose stools now much worse sometimes leads to vomiting. Colonoscopy/endoscopy clear?

Hard to say: Warrants an exam. I think gall bladder issues need to be ruled out. Anxiety and irritable bowel rarely are bad enough to cause vomiting. Other possibilities exist.

Gatroenteritis: Two weeks of gurgling in stomach and loose stools suggest to me that you are suffering from an infectious condition of GI Tract called Gastroenteritis and usually gets better within 2to5 days if caused by viruses and sometimes with bacteria like E Coli, Shigela or Salmonela Since it is persisting for2 weeks it may be from parasites like Giardia or Ameba You can only diagnose by doing stool culture

Hypermotility: The only explanation I have is you had some stomach and proximal duodenum indigestion, possibly caused by too much wine, that led to tainting of your stools with bile from the common bile which empties into the duodenum.

Not specifically: I do not know that gallstones are related to the color of the bowel movements unless gallstones caused obstruction of the bile duct resulting in jaundice and pain, which would then result in very pale light tan colored stools.

Depends: Sometimes is the bile juice, a normal secretion of your digestive tube, that gives this color to your stool. If you have no symptoms whatsoevere probably this is the reason.
