Comments from related studies:
From this study (12 hours ago):
Also utilizing testosterone pellet therapy for low testosterone. Had colonoscopy today, gastroenterologist said melanosis of colon could be from drinking herbal tea. Everything I have read relates to laxative abuse, senna use etc. Do not use laxatives and the only herbal tea I drink is a roibus tropica tea blend from Teavana (20 oz daily). Eat a diet high in fiber. Also take a multi vitamin (Alive once daily for women 50+). Just stumped as to what else could cause the melanosis in my colon? Thank you!

I'm not sure if it is the magnesium or the Diethylpropion but the symptoms started when I upped my dosage on the Diethylpropion and started taking magnesium. I am actually taking Nature-throid but would not come up on list
