Dark brown pee???
I'm a 24 year old male, slightly underweight. Normally a nutrition nerd. I have had only two sexual partners in my life, one of which is a virgin and the other had only had sexual experience of 1 or 2 occasions with the same guy with condom use, and I did get tested while dating her with negative results (1 blood, 2 urine). I'd think I'd be low risk for hepatitis, right? I certainly don't do drugs.
On Monday morning I woke up with annoying, but not overwhelming, diarrhea. (I had pizza the night before on vacation) Diarrhea occurred about 4 times in two hours after waking, but it didn't feel like anything too serious. I did have very slight nausea that fluctuated throughout the day. Symptoms persisted with a very bad stomach ache for the following few days and I drank little (though I tried) and ate almost nothing. Dehydration?
Shockingly, my brother just had brown pee 2 days ago!! He was not on vacation with me, but told me when I arrived home. Coincidence?

Dr. P Jyoti :

I am Dr. P. Jyoti, MD. I promise to use my full experience and knowledge to provide answers specific to your question. Feel free to ask me anything.

Dr. P Jyoti :

hello would you like to chat on this?

Dr. P Jyoti :

hello are you taking any medicines, vitamins, etc?

Customer:

I started taking adderall several months ago for concentration issues, but that is all. I took pepto bismol chewables on monday while traveling sick (nausea, diarrhea and upset stomach) which didn't really help. I took Emetrol on Tuesday and Thursday which worked much better. I didn't take any medication except 15mg adderall on Friday.

Customer:

For vitamins I do take D3 from mushroom extracts, Omega-3 DHA-EPA from algal oil, occasionally iodine and also chewable probiotic

Dr. P Jyoti :

this is most likely due to dehydration

Dr. P Jyoti :

along with the pepto bismol tabs

Dr. P Jyoti :

pepto bismol can cause dark color of the urine

Dr. P Jyoti :

as also dehydration

Dr. P Jyoti :

combination of both caused this

Dr. P Jyoti :

take a lot of fluids now

Customer:

Well, I had the pepto bismol on monday, but just had the brown pee a few minutes ago

Dr. P Jyoti :

adequat

Dr. P Jyoti :

then it must be just the dehydration

Dr. P Jyoti :

take a lot of fluids

Dr. P Jyoti :

water, fruit juices, etc

Dr. P Jyoti :

you will find that the urine will become normal again

Customer:

Okay, thank you!

Dr. P Jyoti :

of course if it doesnt you will need to talk to a doctor

Dr. P Jyoti :

but I am sure it will turn watery again

Dr. P Jyoti :

and be careful to have enough fluids so that your urine remains watery in color

Dr. P Jyoti :

high colored urne is a sign of dehydration and a sign that you need more fluids
