Can giardiasis melds cause yellow stools
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 8 months ago.

Fenbendazole and metronidazole are commonly prescribed when addressing Giardia and neither are expected to cause yellow stools. Instead, I suspect that Jackson's gastrointestinal motility is quite fast at this time and bacteria haven't had time to metabolize yellow bile completely into stercobilinogen which gives stool its characteristic brown color. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
