In brief: Orange urine

Rifampin is generally well tolerated with <5% of individuals having rash and gastrointestinal side effects.
It can cause liver test abnormalities in 10-15% of individuals who take it for a long time. Liver tests should be monitored by a doctor. Rifampin can interact with many other medications in potentially harmful ways. It will also turn all of your body fluids orange colored.
