Change in Urine Color - 尿の色の変化 -
|Daniel :||Hello, thanks for calling Healthwise Community Hospital. I’m Daniel, today’s Pharmacist. How can I help you?|
|Mrs. Rice:||Hi, this is Linda Rice.|
|Daniel :||What can I do to help you?|
|Mrs. Rice:||I am worried about the unusual color of my urine.|
|Daniel :||Abnormal urine color may be caused by infection, disease, medications, or the food we eat. What is the urine color and when did you first notice the discoloration?|
|Mrs. Rice||It turned red-orange when I started taking Dr. Luke’s prescribed medication, Rifampin.|
|Daniel :||Rifampin can cause color changes in urine and stool. That is to be expected with this medication.|
|Mrs. Rice:||Should I stop taking the medication?|
|Daniel :||Take the medication exactly as prescribed unless there are other symptoms that Dr. Luke needs to check right away.|
|Mrs. Rice:||I don't have any other unusual problems. Thank you for your advice.|
|Daniel:||Don’t hesitate to call again Mrs. Rice.|
Think about it
- What is the side effect of Rifampin?
- When should Mrs. Rice see her doctor?
- Have you had urine discoloration? What was the cause?
