Hi,
Welcome to Ja and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your friends symptoms. I just came online to see that you have been waiting for some time so ill quickly answer this question for you. Actually the presence of black colored stool and vomiting up black material is an indication that your friend is bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract. This means that she could be bleeding from tbe esophagus, the stomach or first part of the small intestine. When the blood moves through the intestines it shows up as black in the stool. Secondly black colored vomits means that the blood had been present in the stomach for some time due to which it changed its color. The fact is that throwing up blood of this color or even passing mack colored still is an immediate indication to get evaluated in the er or visit a gastroenterologist.she needs to get an endoscopy done which would involve putting a camera down her esophagus to look for the site of bleeding. The procedure is painless and she would be under sedation for it. This is very important because otherwise she would start to bleed again and it may be uncontrollable at that time.
Right now she should start using over the counter prilosec at a dose of 40 mg twice daily for two days and afterward 20 mg twice daily for the next 14 days. But she should see her doctor as soon as possible.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
