Re: anyone suffered from this

Oh yes, the iron tablets will make your stools dark green or black/dark colored. Very normal. Doesn't it say on the bottle the side effects? Usually prescription or even over the counter meds will list side effects and caution info. This could help save you a lot of grief and worry in the future.
