Brief Answer:
No this medicines can not cause it.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

No, none of this madicines can not cause it. Dark urine can be caused by low liquids intake (most common) or stones in bile ducts (along with pale stool).
I suggest you to increase fluids intake and see if it improves. If not, urine analysis should be done.

Hope this helps.
