Is Green Stool a Side Effect of Calcium Supplements?
I just started taking Caltrat with vitamin D. I am on several other meds for bipolar, asthma, and COPD. I got up this morning and had a light green stool. Is this normal? I started it last week. Thank you.
Green stool is not considered a side effect of calcium supplementation.
