Can multivitamins make your stool turn darker?

    I started a multivitamin last night and this afternoon when I went it was very dark brown (not tarry, it was of normal consistency).

    Could this be the new vitamins?

    Thanks,

    didn't do this but since I have been able to tolerate chlorella my stools have gone very dark brown too.

    I also took some pepto today but it was pretty near the time I went to the bathroom. I know pepto will make it dark but i wonder if it can act that fast? probably 1/2 hour before I went poop.
