My toddlerlet has a urine odor that smells sort of like gasoline. I notice it off and on. Right now he's on amoxicillin. Could that be the reason?

I am taking amoxicillin for a ear infection and notice yesterday my urine is bright orange is that normal?

Go see your doctor: Go and see your doctor.

Orange (as opposed to yellow or slightly brownish) urine is not normal. It is a sign of liver or sometimes urinary tract disease.

Intensely yellow urine is normal after taking a number of products, particularly b group vitamins. Urine from people taking penicillins such as Amoxicillin typically has a distinctive, "yeasty" smell. But if your urine is truly orange this may be the sign of something wrong and you should go see your doctor. ...Read more

Creatinine level 2.56 to 1.59 after completing amoxicillin against md advice (no bacteria in Urine but wbc and rbc). Any possible explanation?

Yes: You are in kidney failure. That is why your serum creatinine is so elevated. You do not have any bacteria in your urine and that is why your doc said don't bother taking an antibiotic against a nonexistent infection. On the other hand, your kidneys have begun to fail. If you haven't been introduced to a good nephrologist yet get a good intro soon. You will be spending time with him soon. ...Read more

Testicular pain for about two weeks and pain in lower back. Took amoxicillin for 4 days and doxy for 7. No help. No pain or blood in urine. See doc?

Stop Rx, see doctor: You might be worried about epididymitis, but unlikely without obvious testicular enlargement and marked tenderness, usually involving only one testicle. Both testicles plus pain in back or abdomen suggest a prostate problem. The most common of these is chronic pelvic pain syndrome, a variation on prostatitis, but not due to infection so antibiotics don't work. Stop all treatment and see a doctor. ...Read more

Hello, 6 years old girl have been through a throat infection, so she took amoxicillin but her urine turned dark (cola colored) what is the cause??

Hello, 6 years old girl have been through a throat infection, so she took amoxicillin but her urine turned dark (cola colored) what is the cause??

Dr. Can check today: Dark, cola-colored urine after a strep throat infection means a trip to the doctor today. Strep throat and strep skin infections can cause kidney damage, which is a bad problem sometimes, but is a self-resolving disorder most of the time (resolves over several weeks). The doctor will order blood tests and urine tests, and will keep an eye on the high blood pressure and water retention. ...Read more

I have strep throat & started taking amoxicillin yesterday its twice a day @ 875mg. I noticed today that my urine is bright yellow almost orange color?

Vitamin overdose: You might also be taking some vitamin supplements? Particularly B-vitamins? I don't actually recommend vitamin supplements unless you have a 'real' reason to take them. I don't think the Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is at fault here-but it's quite possible you're dehydrated from your illness. I would drink as much fluid as you can: thin soups, ginger tea, lemonade, coconut water etc to support your body through this ...Read more

I had a UTI I just got finished taking macrobid. I'm taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) now. My urine smells like ham. I have to go see a urologist. What could this be?

Urine odor: By itself is a pretty unreliable marker of anything. Various food/spice/breakdown products including those from the drug itself are excreted into the urine and could produce an odor. Without other symptoms, pain/irritaiton/bleeding odor by itself is not an indicator of infection
cannot say in your particular case, but generally, this would be true. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: The texture of semen widely varies among men over lifetime & reflects the frequency of ejaculation - the more often, the thinner.

In fact, having yellowish concentrated urine indicates having good kidney function. So, don't worry about it as long as being comfortable & OK in UA ...Read more
