I drink lots of water, but my urine is often dark yellow. Is it normal?

In brief: See below

Is urine dark yellow throughout the day or only first void of the day? Do you take vitamin b complex? Do you take any medications? First-void urine tends to be darker because we haven't been drinking during sleep.
Certain b vitamins can turn urine a bright yellow color. Some meds contain tartrazine in the coating, which may color urine. If you have burning/ pain, urgency, frequency, see doc.
