Dr. Martin Raff answered:

How often is it ok to have loose stools?

Question unclear

Diarrhea
What do you mean by "loose"? Is this a change? It is seldom normal to have this happen unless something in diet or an organism or other inflammatory process is in progress. Generally these are self-limited and resolve in under 5-7 days. The daily frequency is also an issue. Be more specific in your question. Best

Can a mutivitamin give you loose stools?

Check ingredients...

If your multivitamin is high in magnesium, you're getting a laxative effect equivalent to taking milk of magnesia. Alternatively, some pill vehicles can cause loose stool, even if the pill ingredients do not. In any case, stop taking the supplement & if diarrhea persists, another cause must be sought.
