LOL..you just helped me out with my ADD hubby's tooth brushing so I s'pose i owe you one.

Ok, here goes.....green poop, 9 times out of 10 is nothing ever to worry about.  It can be due to a change in diet, supplements, or as you suggested, meds.  It can also be due to a quicker than normal transit through the intestinal tract.

Is nothing sacred here??embarrassed

I have also eaten something before containing green dye.  The food itself might not be green, but if the dye reacts with your chemistry, it might "show".

Have you been eating green suckers or jello?  The last time that my son had green poop he had just eaten green jello...

That could be it.  Anything that you eat that's green in large quantities can turn your poop green.

I have heard you only have to worry if it is black or bloody.
