Exclamation DARK STOOL & Worried can it be Snapple tea?

[B][SIZE="4"]Hi guys i am a bit worried my stool is dark almost black and i am not sure why, my husband says it could be that i drink too many lemon snapple drinks but I am not sure that can be whats causing it, I mean i have acid reflux and i take 2 nexiums a day but I am not sure if that can be causing it I never really noticed such dark/black stool, i am not sure the snapples teas can be causing this but i am getting a bit scared. by the way i noticed that i also have hemmroids for 2 days now.[/SIZE][/B]

Re: DARK STOOL & Worried can it be Snapple tea?

Hi danilee, and No I dont take any vitamins at all, i will stop the snapples for one day just to test and see if thats whats causing this mess, the only new med i have been on is TC cytomel for my thyroid but i doubt that could cause this, since snapple is made of tea i wonder if that could be since its a dark color but not black

I am having the same thing but I am eating too many oreo cookies...I wonder if that is causing it? I am also on Nexium...I started them just over a week ago.

Re: DARK STOOL & Worried can it be Snapple tea?

from what i understood from the dr when i had black stools there were a sign of something wrong in the upper GI tract. Bleeding of some sort. I got black stools after a gallstone had blocked off the bile duct and it took me 3 days of immense pain to check into the ER. i had a bowel movement while i was in there and it was black like tar. I freaked out and went to the nurse right away and said what the heck is that all about. and they said i was bleeding somewhere in the upper GI tract.

not alwaysthe case i suppose but something i would highly recommend seeking a dr's advice on

yes normally when dark stools are present..There is an indication of internal bleeding in the G.I track or perhaps one is intaking too much iron..Id consult your Dr on this matter..

Exclamation Re: DARK STOOL & Worried can it be Snapple tea?

Hi guys.. I finally am sure it was the Snapple tea, after 5 days of not drinking any snapple Today i finally have normal stools,
i was confused as to whether i had any internal bleeding in my stomach because i had NO pain, and NO actual blood in my stool. i was going to my gastro doc this week if this didnt stop so i am glad it did,Thanks god.

I cant believe snapple tea can stay in your system for sooo long thats why I was afraid because the poop was so dark anyway my mom says not to drink snapple anymore she says it can mess up my colon since it stays in the system for so long?

I love snapples and hate giving up on them

Re: DARK STOOL & Worried can it be Snapple tea?

well, now we know a Snapple a day won't keep the doctor away!!

One other benefit of giving it up is that you won't be drinking 10 teaspoons of sugar a day, or more if you have more than one bottle. If it's the sugar-free kind then even better because you won't be putting poison in your body anymore.

It was of interest to me to read this because I recently started drinking black tea instead of coffee and I didn't know that it can cause problems with the colon, which I am having a little trouble with. Maybe I will just drink herbal tea or at least just green tea.
