I am a 24 year old female. I currently have very dark urine but it's not frequent however when I get done there is a small amount of blood on the toil?
Hematuria.: Your first description just sounds like a concentrated urine - like you just need to drink more water - but the blood is a little more thought provoking. You may have an infection, or there could be something else going on. We're generally concerned when blood starts leaving the body. You should see a doctor and start with an exam and urinalysis and culture.

Can one dose of Ativan (lorazepam) or Propranolol cause tremors and dark urine? About to see cardiology today. Just wondering.
Not that I know of: Both drugs, in fact, REDUCE tremor in most people. Dark urine is usually just related to dehydration, but if you are normally hydrated and it still appears dark, a urinalysis is the place to at least start. Cannot tell you what is going on without a more complete history of the problem, as well as more medical information. Talk to your cardiologist about it.
