Hello doctor,

Recently, I started taking Abhayarishta medicine. I was having pain in the anus. I consulted a doctor and they told that it is an infection. Now daily I take Abhayarishta medicine for better digestion. But the stool color is dark brown. Is it because of Abhayarishta or some other problem? Please suggest.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Abhayaristam is a laxative and appetizer. It is good for your concern. It might be causing dark brown stool. But there are other causes too. Some kind of foods, and internal bleeding are also responsible for that.

You can check it very easily. Just stop Abhayaristam for two to three days and observe your stool. Also, give attention to your food. Spinach, beetroot, or other iron-rich foods also cause brown or blackish stool. You should avoid them and watch your stool. If stool color persists brown, you should consult an anorectal specialist.

If you have any queries regarding this concern, feel free to revert back.
