Does Polyethylene Glycol or also called miralax (polyethylene glycol) cause green sticky stools ? Please help

Does Polyethylene Glycol or also called miralax (polyethylene glycol) cause green sticky stools ? Please help

Not usually.: MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) does not usually cause green sticky stools. If anything, it usually causes watery stools that are the same color as the stool was prior to taking the medication. Green stools are not usually worrisome. Unless you see black tarry stool or signs of red blood, I would not worry about it. Good luck. ...Read more

Bm 2/4. Take miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily w/ colace. Dr prescribed laxative did not help and w/ enema just got out blood tinged mucus? Appt tomorrow.

Bm 2/4. Take miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily w/ colace. Dr prescribed laxative did not help and w/ enema just got out blood tinged mucus? Appt tomorrow.

See Doctor...: I'm glad you are going to see your doctor tomorrow. It sounds like you are struggling with constipation and have tried MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) + colace stool softner and a enema without results. The blood tinged mucous is probably from enema tip trauma to the rectal walls. In the meantime i'd suggest you drink a chilled bottle of magnesium citrate followed by a few glasses of water. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm having diarrhea, black stool w/ milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Why is that?

I'm having diarrhea, black stool w/ milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Why is that?

Milk of Magnesia (magnesium hydroxide): Milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) can cause diarrhea as a side effect. I was unable to find black stool listed as a side effect of milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Did you take any iron or pepto bismal? Black, tarry, foul smelling stool could be melena (gi bleed). Please get seen promptly for signs of melena. Advise your dr regardless. ...Read more

I take colace & miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily - occasionally 2 tsp of Calm powder. when I do, I see black floating drops that leave orange oily residue??? what's that?

I take colace & miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily - occasionally 2 tsp of Calm powder. when I do, I see black floating drops that leave orange oily residue??? what's that?

Not certain.: An oily residue may indicate that CALM may be interfering with your intestine's absorption of dietary fat. Magnesium can react with other substances in the intestine. There is NO evidence that a person eating a normal diet needs additional magnesium and no evidence that Calm has any positive effects in a healthy person. If it made my stool look like that, I personally wouldn't use it. ...Read more

Greenish liquid diarrhea and abdominal pain three days after food poisoning. Vomiting has stopped.Why? Been trying remedies like apple cider vinegar.

D+ V ?: Hello Carl814, you don't say whether you HAD any antibiotic treatment. In this case one would almost empirically treat with CIPRO (ciprofloxacin) 50mg bid for 5 days because it indeed does sound like an infectious diarrhea. If you did not take any antibiotics and are better I WOULD NOT ADVISE TAKING ANY NOW. If diarrhea returns getting a stool culture would be helpful.Vomiting is a part of acute phase only. thx ...Read more

Does liquid chlorophyll prevent vaginal discharge?
