What is reason for brown tea colored urine? I'm taking amoxicillin for dental surgery. It has only happened one time. I do not drink much water. I usually have tea. I am on 150 mg Wellbutron, 600 mg lamictal, 90 mg armour thyroid. I just noticed it. Usually my urine is dark yellow. I would think from not enough water.

Brief Answer:
Wait and observe

Detailed Answer:
Brown coloured urine indicates presence of blood (RBC's) in the urine - what we call as hematuria. This is usually a benign condition which settles down spontaneously. If the symptoms recur in the next 24 hours, I would think of renal stones as the likely cause. Drug induced renal bleeding would be my second possibility.

Accordingly, my suggestion to you would be to:
1. Wait and watch the amount and color of urine.
2. Drink plenty of fluids to remain well hydrated.

If the symptoms persist, I would encourage you to visit your local doctor. He/she can order set of urine and blood tests - urine routine test, culture and sensitivity test, liver function test, platelet count and Ultrasound KUB. Based on the results a future referral to nephrologist is entailed.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
