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
