Re: Funny metal smell in stool..taking Prevacid
I am on prevacid and have been for 3 or 4 years. I don't notice any metal smell. I do have color changes, but usually due to what I eat. For example, if I am having a bad week with my stomach and eat all kinds of the BRAT foods like rice, bread, applesauce, crackers, noodles, chicken, turkey etc., the bland foods, my stools will always be light in color. All those foods are light in color. If I eat grape foods like jelly or blue and red frosting colored with food coloring they will be green. I noticed this after buying a CUBS cake for my son for his birthday. We both had green stools and figured it was probably the frosting since we weren't sick. Kind of a funny story!
Have you changed your diet at all?
