Diarrhea and Imuran

My son just started taking Imuran on Friday. He has been on Prednisone for about 2 weeks now so his stools were getting pretty good until today. He now has diarrhea and it is dark in color. Is this a "normal" side effect?

Almost Black. It doesn't have a tar consistency, it's pretty runny.

No iron supplement but it is much better now. I'm thinking it was something he ate. Thank you both.
