Specializes in Internal Medicine
Yes: Yes it is possible for macrobid to turn your urine dark yellow or brown in color. Please make sure you are drinking plenty of water as well.
Dr. Charles Turck
Pharmacology 17 years experience
Yes: Macrobid may cause urine to turn brown, partly because it so easily dissolves in urine. This is a normal and harmless side effect that will go away on its own when the medication is stopped.
