Worried about my urine color. Light green. I am taking Zoloft pill to start my period & xanax (alprazolam). No symptoms of uti. Just finished anti biotics 4 uti?

Worried about my urine color. Light green. I am taking Zoloft pill to start my period & xanax (alprazolam). No symptoms of uti. Just finished anti biotics 4 uti?

Hard to say: But I would ask the gynecologist who is prescribing for you. Haven't heard of this with either zoloft or xanax, (alprazolam) but green food colorings that are used in some pills could do this, or it could be from certain foods, like brocolli and asparagus. Very rarely, excessive bile in the urine, from some form of gallbladder or liver problems could do this. Your doctor can do a urinalysis to check it out. ...Read more

Eating total cereal causes my pee to be neon yellow, yet, my multivitamin does not. What's going on?

Vitamin B Complex: Total has lots of added vitamins & especially if you take a multi along with it you will have excess amounts of vitamin b complex which can cause the neon yellow urine. It is normal since your body just does not need those extra vitamins. It also speaks well of the rest of your diet in that you most likely are getting an adequate amount of needed vitamins in your normal foods. ...Read more
