Thanks for your question.

The green color is given to the stool by the bile. In the normal course of action as the stool passes through the gut, bile is broken down producing bile salts giving the stools brown color.
The green color can be due to

· Rapid transit of stools would not allow the bile to be broken down and lead to green color stools. Bile which is brilliant green in color is excreted as such giving a green color to stool.

· Eating iron supplements or food rich in Iron can also cause green discoloration. Eating blueberries can also lead to a stool colored abnormally.

· If you have a change in bowel habits in addition to passing green stools, you may be having certain infections like salmonella and giardia.These infections can green colored stools.

If you are persistently having green colored stools or a change in bowel habits including frequent stools you need to get your stool examined to rule out an infection.

Feel free to ask any follow up questions.
Do take a moment to honour my work and time by rating my answer hopefully 5 stars.

What meds would they give me
Doctor: Dr.Sawhney, Doctor replied 4 months ago
In most cases of infective diarrhoea including bacterial and viral no antibiotics are given as most of these are self limiting.
If this problem has been persisting for a week or more you may be given antibiotics to treat bacterial infection.
Many different antibiotics can be used and it would be your doctor's discretion regarding the particular antibiotic to be used.
