From this study (8 months ago):
Have been taking Norco for 5 months. Last 2 days have blood in stool with stomach pain
From this study (1 year ago):
The Bloody stools co incide with increased bowel movements 2-3 times a day. The condition tends to come and go but I have not correleated it to the Ibuprophen ( 600MG 4 times/day for a week ) /oxycondonelow dose with 325MG acetaminiphen @4times/day ) I've been taking. I've been taking this for at first lower left side back pain which has now moved more to the left side lower rib cage. The bloody stool issue seems to come and go with 1-2 months seperation of condition last for a week or two then subsides. I n also have a burning sensation and light red blood on wiping myself. First bowel movement is OK 2nd is OK 3rd tends to burn and if a fourth occurs it get pretty sore/senative. Stool is soft and formed
