Might be TMI for some….
Last night, the first, painful symptoms of a UTI started to develop. I have only had one in my life, but you can’t mistake it, LOL.
Today while waiting for my antibiotic prescription to be filled, I went to WM and picked up some pure cranberry juice and AZO tablets. My doctor recommended them to help with the pain.
I mixed a bottle of water with cranberry juice (very strong if you are used to the sweet stuff) and took 2 tablets as recommended. I had to go to the bathroom, and my urine was NEON ORANGE. We are talking bright, electric, highlighter orange. I freaked out! Got online, started googling, etc.
Was getting ready to call the doctor, and noticed on the insert for the AZO, it plainly says “Product will turn urine yellow and orange. Don’t be alarmed.”
Oh. That would have saved some panic, LOL!

Haha, I wish he would have! I looked down and was like, oh SH*T! I was pretty sure I was dying. LOL.

Hahaha I can relate. I take vitamin B complex because I eat 99% vegetarian, and it turns my pee NEON YELLOW. I freaked out the first time it happened, then my husband told me it happens to him all the time.

I would freak too! At the risk of TMI, while not directly related (not a medication thing), this is why I don’t eat red beets anymore…. the color comes out in my bowel movement and I’m always convinced I’m bleeding internally before I remember what I’ve been eating!
